Police yesterday recovered the body of a woman from a tin-shed building in Dhaka's Mohammadpur area.
The identity of the woman, aged around 30, could not be known immediately, police said.
On information, police recovered the body in a pool of blood around 8:30am from inside the house in Chand Udyan area, said GG Biswas, officer-in-charge of Mohammadpur Police Station.
The woman had rented the makeshift house five days ago with a man. They claimed to be husband and wife, the OC said quoting the neighbours.
The “husband” went into hiding immediately after the incident, said the OC.
The body of the victim has been sent to Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College morgue for autopsy, he added.
Meanwhile, morgue sources said the victim's tendons in both legs were severed and there were injury marks on her head.
