Two children found dead in capital

Police yesterday recovered bodies of two children from different areas in the capital.

They were identified as Saif, a first grader, and Shamim, a sixth grader.

Shamim's body was recovered from a drain and that of Saif from a septic tank, said Abdul Kuddus Fakir, officer-in-charge of Sabujbagh Police Station.

They both had been missing since Thursday, added the OC.

Saif went to his maternal grandparents' home at Nandipara. After having breakfast on Thursday, he went out to play and did not return home, said his uncle Atauddin.

His body was found floating inside a septic tank of their house yesterday after a frantic search, he added.

There was a cardboard sheet on the tank. The boy fell into it when he stepped on the sheet, said police.

On the other hand, Shamim fell into a drain at Basabo on Thursday, said Sabujbag police, adding that fire fighters found his body in the drain following a harrowing search.

 The bodies were sent to Dhaka Medical College Hospital for autopsy.
