Teen worker dies jumping out of spa during DNCC drive

An 18-year-old girl died of her injuries after she and others tried to escape a spa centre in Gulshan, during a drive by Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) on Wednesday.


Farzana Begum, 18, was the wife of one Zahid Hasan and a resident of Batiaghata upazila in Khulna. She had been living with her family in the capital’s Khilkhet.


Alamgir Hossain, sub-inspector (SI) of Gulshan police station, said that two women who jumped off the roof of a building housing the spa centre during the DNCC drive and sustained serious injuries, were taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital.


Farzana was declared dead by the physicians while the other was undergoing treatment at the emergency department, he said.


An officer who took part in the drive said the women fell when a team led by an executive magistrate of the DNCC reached the spot to conduct a drive against commercial activities in residential areas.


Farzana’s husband said his wife and her elder sister Afsana left home for work at the spa at around 11am on Wednesday.


Later he came to know that Farzana had an accident and her elder sister was detained at the police station, he said.
