"I committed suicide or committed suicide" .. An Egyptian official raises doubts about the mystery of the Basant case (video)

A member of the National Council for Human Rights, head of the Egyptian Center for Women's Rights, Nihad Abu al-Qumsan, called for an investigation into the family of the girl, Basant Khaled, who committed suicide after being subjected to "electronic blackmail" and because of her sister's attempt to commit suicide, noting that she had doubts about the case.

The Public Prosecution had referred 5 defendants to the Criminal Court in the case of Basant's suicide after blackmailing and bullying some people and circulating fabricated pictures of her.

A few days ago, Egyptian media indicated that her sister, Naira, had fallen ill as a result of her attempt to commit suicide with the poisonous "grain" that Basant had used to commit suicide, but Naira was saved in the hospital.

Abu al-Qumsan, in a telephone interview with the Egyptian channel "ON", demanded the Attorney General to investigate the two girls' families, "because the case is full of contradictions and has become a great mystery, and I began to doubt the method of Basant's suicide and the attempt of her sister's suicide. Did Basant commit suicide or did she commit suicide?"

And she continued, "It must be investigated whether the family forced either of the two girls to take the poisonous pill. Basant did not get any support from her family when her photos were published, but was subjected to tremendous pressure, and the letter she wrote before her death (it was diverting to convince the family that she was not as it is rumored) indicates that", and "her sister may have been subjected to similar pressures, which needs to be investigated."
