He left behind a purported suicide note saying no one was responsible for his death.

30-year-old imam allegedly ended his life by hanging from the ceiling of his room at a mosque in Manikganj’s Singair upazila on Thursday.

The deceased was identified as Md Ferdous Islam, the imam of Nayapara Jame Mosjid and son of Siddiqur Rahman of Barishal’s Muladi upazila. His body was recovered by the police around 10.30pm.

Ferdous left behind a purported suicide note. “No one is responsible for my death,” read the note found in his room. Local union parishad member Rezaul Karim said the imam even led devotees at Esha prayers in the mosque just before he killed himself around 9.30pm. “Locals spotted his body and informed police.”

A headphone attached to his mobile phone was found near his body, he said.

Officer-in-charge of Singair police station Shafiqul Islam Mollah said, “It seems to be a case of suicide. But an autopsy can only confirm that. A case of unnatural death has been filed in this regard.”
