A man -- missing for the last seven days -- was found dead yesterday in Dhaka’s Khilgaon area. The body was found tied, with a cable, to a pillar underwater in a jheel (waterbody).
The deceased was identified as Zakir Hossain, 45, a refrigerator technician. Zakir left home in Dakkhingaon area in Sabujbagh on October 14 afternoon, informing his wife Kulsum Begum that he would go to Nagdarpar area, said Mashiure Rahman, officer-in-charge of Khilgaon Police Station.
As he did not return, his wife called his mobile phone many times but no one picked up.
The next day, when his wife went out to search for him, she found Zakir’s mobile phone and sandal near the jheel of Nagdarpar area, the OC said. Kulsum filed a general diary with the police station.
Police conducted search that day, but could not find him.
Yesterday, police recovered the body after a man first noticed parts of his body surfacing from the water.
