Popular television actress Sabina Yasmin Mita Noor has been found dead at her Gulshan residence in the capital Monday.
Police recovered the hanging body of the 42-year-old TV star in the morning and sent it to Dhaka Medical College morgue for autopsy.
The body was found hanging from the ceiling fan with a scarf at the drawing room of her house where she lived with her husband, Shahanur Rahman Majumder, a businessman, and two sons, said Rafiqul Islam, officer-in-charge (OC) of Gulshan Police Station.
According to police inquest report, injury marks have been found at different points of her body.
Police suspect that it could be a sequel to a family feud.
A police team went to the Niketan office of Mita’s husband Saturday night after receiving a phone call from the office that an altercation had been going on among the couple, the OC told The Daily Star.
Mita and her husband solved the problem in presence of the police saying sorry to each others, he said.
The couple later called in their sons and they had dinner at a Chinese restaurant to formally remove the distances, according to the OC.
However, police did not immediately disclose the reason of the feud between the couple.
The OC official said the family and their home aides told the law enforcers during the body recovery that the couple had no altercation at home on Sunday. The family also said Mita Noor and her husband were at home on Sunday.
“The incident might have taken place anytime in the midnight. The reason is still unknown,” Shehzad Noor Taus, 17-year-old elder son of the actress, told The Daily Star.
Meanwhile, Shahanur did not meet journalists though he was present at the residence.
Fazlur Rahman, Mita’s father, refused to make any comment regarding the death.
Dr AKM Shafiuzzaman of the DMC, who conducted the autopsy, told The Daily Star that the case was primarily found to be a suicide incident.
Samples have been collected for viscera tests, he said, adding that cause of death would be known once the test results are ready.
The morgue sources, however, said the injury marks may be two to three days old.
However, the marks are not directly responsible for the death, the sources added.
Earlier, police received a phone call from Mita’s Gulshan-1 residence around 6:45am and rushed to the spot.
On information, the members of Criminal Investigation Department also reached the spot to investigate the incident.
Shahanur and Mita got married 24 years ago, said Mohsin Rajib, one of Shahanur’s nephews.
