A man and a woman were found dead at a hotel room in Chittagong city Saturday morning.
The deceased — Saiful Islam, 35, and Azeda Begum, 32, — identified themselves as husband and wife in the registry book of hotel ‘New Golden City’ located at Alankar intersection, said Azizur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Pahartali Police Station.
Saiful and Azeda rented room No. 205 of the hotel around 7:00pm Friday, the OC said quoting hotel manager Md Rafique.
As the duo did not open the door Saturday morning, the hotel authorities called police around 10:00am.
Police immediately rushed to the spot and broke open the door and found Saiful’s body hanging from the ceiling fan, the OC said.
Azdea was found with her throat slit, he added.
Police detained three people — the manager and two other hotel staff — for interrogation.
