Late on Sunday, 12 July, a female NGO staff member was strangled to death in an apparent robbery and rape attempt in Bangladesh. Four assailants attacked Sheuli Akhter, 30, as she was returning home in the evening in Dadpur village at Boalmari upazila in Faridpur. The attackers stole her mobile phone after apparently trying and failing to rape her.
Ms. Akhter worked as an assistant accountant with the Boalmari office of Social Development Committee, a Bangladeshi NGO.
