She claimed she and her 12 brothers and sisters, who ranged in age from 29 to 3, had for years been held against their will in the family home. She said they had been chained up, tortured and starved. Worst of all, she accused her parents of being responsible for the abuse.

Australia's leading forum for media analysis and comment, presented by one of Australia's most respected journalists Paul Barry. RAUDHA Athif was just 21 and the model who grew up in the picturesque Maldives appeared to have the world at her feet — until she turned up dead in a hostel room in Bangladesh. The image of her emerging from crystal blue sea went viral and eventually helped her land on the cover of Vogue India in October According to police, year-old Raudha hanged herself with a scarf from the ceiling fan in her college dormitory room.
But her family continues to reject the finding, claiming she was murdered. Now she's dead at What really happened to Raudha?
