Police recovered the bodies of two schoolboys yesterday who were abducted in Dinajpur and Natore districts.
The body of a schoolboy, who was abducted for Tk 50 lakh ransom four days ago, was recovered in Sadar upazila of Dinajpur early yesterday.
The law enforcers arrested one Obaidul Haque, his wife Rawshan Ara and Md Abbas Ali of Mohabbatpur village in connection with the incident, reports our correspondent.
The deceased is Md Saiadul Mursalin, 14, son of Moksedul Islam of the village.
He was a class IX student of Cheradangi High School in the upazila.
At 2:30am, some locals saw a few men removing something stinky from the house of one Abbas Ali, about 20 metres away from Mursalin's residence, and informed the police.
Later, police recovered the body of Mursalin with his hands and legs tied up from behind and sent it to Dinajpur Medical College and Hospital morgue for autopsy.
Deceased's father Moksedul Islam, a deed writer at Dinajpur registry office, said Rashidul Islam, son of Obaidul Haque, called Mursalin out of home on Thursday afternoon and since his son remained missing.
The abductors then demanded Tk 50 lakh ransom for his release over mobile phone, he said.
Following an abduction case filed by Mursalin's brother-in-law Md Morshedul Islam, police arrested Rashidul Islam and one Sabuj on Thursday and Friday.
The boy was strangled sometime on Friday and the body dumped inside the house of Abbas Ali, police suspected.
Mursalin could be saved alive if the law enforcers went into action in time, alleged family members.
Contacted, Sadar police refuted the allegation.
Meanwhile, locals and students of Mursalin's school protested the abduction and killing and demanded immediate punishment to the killer.
