They were identified as Ayesha Siddiqua, 25, wife of Apel Mahmud and their five-year-old daughter Raisa Mahmud. OC of Gomostapur police Golam Mortuza said Apel, an employee of non-government organisation ASA, who lived in a rented house, went to his office at around 7 am and returned home for lunch at 1 pm.
He knocked the door of the house several times, he got no response from inside. Later, he phoned his wife; but yet got no response. At this stage, he informed the locals and police.
