The body of a UNHCR official working in Cox's Bazar was recovered from Moheshkhali upazila's Sonadia point yesterday, three days after he had gone missing.
The body of Soliman Mulata, a citizen of Ethiopia, was caught in the fishing net around 9:00am. The fishermen took the body to the shore, said Afruzul Haque Tutul, additional superintendent of Cox's Bazar police.
On information, a team of Sadar Police Station sent the body to Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital morgue for an autopsy.
The police official said Soliman had been working as the protection officer at the UN refugee agency. Soliman, who had been working in Cox's Bazar for the last one year, used to stay in a hotel in the district town.
Soliman came out of the hotel to visit Rohingya refugee camps on Monday morning and since then, he had remained missing, he said.
Police were investigating the matter, the police official added.
