Vogue Model Found Dead , Hanging From Ceiling Fan

Raudha Athif, a 21-year-old Maldivian model who graced the cover of Vogue India was found dead on Wednesday, hanging from her ceiling fan in her dorm room.

According to The Daily Star:

Police recovered the body of Raudha Athif, 21, a second-year student of Islami Bank Medical College in Nawdapara area, around 12noon, an hour after some of her classmates living in the same building discovered it.

Her classmates saw the body hanging from the ceiling fan with a scarf tied to the neck, said Zillur Rahman, officer-in-charge (OC) of Shah Makhdum Police Station.

One of them cut the scarf with a knife and took the body down, believing she was alive, he added.

Raudha Athif graced the October 2016 Vogue India Beauty and Diversity cover, but her dream was to become a doctor,“Modelling is a hobby rather than a career for me,” she said in a Q&A for the “Beauty In Diversity” shoot. “Becoming a doctor to help people has always been my dream.”

This is so sad.. RIP!
