Police recovered the slit-throat body of a man from the driver’s seat of a car in the capital’s Uttara early yesterday.
The deceased was identified as Arman Hossain, 40. He used to provide ride-sharing services with a rented car for around a year, said his cousin Arif Hossain.
The incident took place in between 12:05am and 1am on Road-16 of Uttara-14, said Abul Kalam, inspector (investigation) of Uttara West Police Station.
Notified by locals, police recovered the body around 1:30am. None of Arman’s belongings, including two mobile phones and wallet, was missing, said the inspector.
“We are looking into the matter,” he added.
According to police, Arman picked up passengers from Rampura at 11:21pm and was supposed to drop them off at Uttara-14. CCTV footage in the area showed that the car reached there around 12:04am.
