3 bullet-hit bodies found in N’ganj

Bullet-hit bodies of four people were found in Narayanganj and Magura yesterday. Of them, police found three bodies near a bridge in Rupganj upazila of Narayanganj. The three were residents of Dhaka city. Moniruzzaman Monir, officer-in-charge (OC) of Rupganj police station, confirmed The Independent the recovery of the three bodies. The police went to the spot after being informed by local people, he said. However, family members of the three claimed that they had been picked by the Detective Branch (DB) of the police from the Doulatdia Ferry Terminal on Wednesday. The three had gone to their friend Shimul’s house at Jhenaidah. While returning to Dhaka, they were picked by the law enforcers from the ferry terminal.

The deceased were identified as Md Sohag, 32, from Mohakhali, Shimul, 30, and Nur Hossain Babu, 30, from Mugda in Dhaka. Shohag and Shimul were friends and Shimul and Babu brothers.

Shohag was identified by his brother Shaon, while Shimul’s wife Ayesha Akhter Anni identified the other two.

Initially, the police thought that the three were shot dead at night and their bodies dumped near the bridge.

The relatives of the three said the supervisor of the bus the victims were travelling in had told them about the DB police taking them away.

The family members had gone to several police stations and detective branch offices, but failed to get any information about their arrest. The police had no case against them and they were not members of any political party. Shaon said his elder brother went missing on Wednesday.

They went to Rupganj police station after seeing a photo of the body on Facebook and indentified his brother.

Shaon said his brother used to run a fast-food shop and satellite cable network business. Sohag has left behind a 10-year-old son.

Shimul’s wife, Anni, told the media that her husband had been missing since Wednesday. She claimed plainclothes men, who had introduced themselves as DB members, came in two micro buses and another vehicle and took them away. On being informed about the bodies, she went to the police station and indentified her husband. She has a daughter.

The family members of the dead identified them at the morgue of Narayanganj General Hospital.

Moniruzzaman (OC) said 60 pieces of yaba were found on the body of one of the dead. A business card of Bismillah Enterprise was found in the wallet of another.

The relatives of the killed men could not say whether there was any case against them, said the OC. “We are investigating the murders,” he added.

When asked about the allegation of the family members, the OC said the district police had not conducted any raid, and he was not aware of any other law enforcement agency arresting them.

In Magura, police recovered the bullet-hit body of an unidentified man from Shotokhali village in Shalikha uapzila.

Local people spotted the body and informed police about it who recovered the body in the morning, said Rabiul Islam, officer-in-charge of Shalikha Police Station.

Police suspect that miscreants killed the man elsewhere and dumped the body here, said police.

The body was sent to Sadar Hospital morgue for autopsy.
