He alleged that she died from bleeding profusely after rape.

Shariful said that Dihan took Anushka to Anwar Khan Modern Hospital as she fell sick due to rape.

He said that filing of a case was under process.

The hospital management, however, declined to say whether she died at the hospital or brought dead, saying that the local police was looking into the matter.

A police officer said that the girl went to the house of Dihan, with whom she had affairs for last few months, in the afternoon and fell sick there.
