Dhaka: An Indian student has been found dead while another was found injured in a flat in Bangladesh's Chittagong's city.

The deceased was identified as Ateef Sheikh, 25, a final year MBBS student of the University of Science and Technology Chittagong (USTC), the Daily Star quoted Alamgir Hossain, Officer-in-Charge of the Akbar Shah Police Station, as saying.

Another Indian student, identified as Winson Singh, 23, was also found hanging from a ceiling fan at the same flat in Akbar Shah locality, the police said. Both men hailed from India's northeastern Manipur state.

The incident took place around 11 pm on Friday night and according to local media reports Singh allegedly stabbed Sheikh to death during an altercation before trying to hang himself. Singh was, however, rescued by other flatmates and both of them were taken to Chittagong Medical College Hospital in wee hours of Saturday, reported.

Sheikh was declared brought dead and had 15 injury marks on his body. "It appears that Ateef and one of his roommates, Winson, were drunk when they brawled... During the fisticuffs, Ateef's throat was hit with something sharp that caused severe bleeding," said Md Jashimuddin, Sub-Inspector at Akbar Shah police station.

Another student Neeraj Guru, who shared the same flat with Sheikh and Singh, said that both men were drinking alcohol in their rooms and soon he heard noises from their room and tried to open the door which was locked from inside. After he managed to open the door, Guru found Sheikh in a pool of blood and Singh hanging from a fan.

Then their neighbours helped Guru bring the two men to the hospital, said a police official.

No one has been arrested in the case yet and an investigation was on, the police said.
