Police recovered the body of a woman from her residence in Noyarhat area of Bayezid yesterday noon.
The deceased was identified as Mukta, 32, wife of Md Saiful Alam, said police.
“Mukta is a former apparels worker and her body was found hanging in her bedroom,” said Sub-inspector Kazi Ripon Sarker of Bayezid Police Station.
SI Ripon said Mukta's in-laws informed police around 11am and police recovered the body around noon in the presence of her family members.
Police found the door of the room open where her body was hanging from the ceiling fan, said SI Ripon, adding that police prepared the inquest report with the help of deceased's younger sister.
Quoting family members, Ripon said Mukta and Saiful had an altercation on Thursday evening, following which Saiful left home.
There are no injury marks on the body and police suspect that she might have died by suicide. The reason of death would be clear after getting the post-mortem report, the SI said.
Ripon said Saiful works for a buying house, and he came home around 2pm despite learning of his wife's death.
Mukta's family members claim that she was murdered; police took Saiful in custody for quizzing, said SI Ripon.
The couple has a four-year-old child.
