RMG worker found dead in Mirpur

An RMG worker was found dead in Dhaka’s Mirpur on Monday.

The deceased, Hosne Ara, 19, used to live with her elder sister and brother-in-law.

Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Shah Ali Police Station Salahuddin Mia said police came to know about the death through the neighbours.

“We recovered the body from her house at Gudaraghat area in Mirpur-1 at 10pm and sent it to Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College morgue for autopsy,” he said.

“There was a tightly knotted scarf and towel around her neck,” he added. Her sister filed a murder case in this connection.

Police detained Hosne Ara’s brother-in-law Jewel for interrogation.

Sub-inspector Khondaker Moniruzzaman said Hosne Ara’s elder sister and brother-in-law are also readymade  garment workers.

On Monday, her sister was working overtime, and Hosne Ara was alone at home. Jewel used to stay at his workplace in the evening but he came early that day, Moniruzzaman said, quoting neighbours.

They also noticed Jewel entering and leaving the house several times.

Hosne Ara’s sister came at 9pm and found her dead.

Hosne Ara got married last week to one Abul Hasem, a butcher, but she and Hasem were living separately.
