Police recovered the hanging body of a 5th-year medical student in Faridpur Sadar upazila yesterday, around 48 hours after he had gone missing from his dormitory.
The dead -- Nayan Chandra Nath, 25, son of late Dilip Chandra Nath of Daganbhuiyan in Feni, was an examinee of professional medical exam at Faridpur Medical College, said police.
The college authorities filed a general diary with Faridpur Sadar Police Station on Thursday afternoon after he had gone missing, said Sub Inspector (SI) Bilal Hossain of the police station.
His body was found hanging from the ceiling of a saw mill at Posra village in the upazila. Informed by the locals, police recovered the body around 7:00am, said the SI.
There was no injury mark on the body, said police, adding that the circumstantial evidence suggested that it could be a case of suicide.
Nayan’s classmates told The Daily Star that he had been suffering from depression for a long time.
His friend Chhabbit Khan said, “He wanted to be a surgeon. But he was told that he could not be one due to some complications in his right-hand fingers.”
The body was sent to the hospital morgue for an autopsy and was later handed over to his family members around 1:30pm, police said.
An unnatural death case was filed in this regard.
