The body of the Saudi national, who was found dead at a house in Mymensingh's Gouripur upazila early Friday, was handed over to the embassy authorities of Saudi Arabia yesterday.
The body of Nasser Faleh Al Dawsari, 48, was handed over around 8:00am to Yasin Md Abdus Shahid, secretary to chargé d'affaires of Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Dhaka, said Dr Subas Chandra Biswas, deputy commissioner (DC) of Mymensingh.
The body was taken to Dhaka in an ambulance from the mortuary of Mymensingh Medical College, said the DC.
According to police, Dawsari had been living at the house of his friend Abu Sayeed Sanny in Douhakhola village of Gouripur since November 9 of last year. On Friday morning, he was found dead with his body bearing no injury mark.
Quoting locals and family members of Sanny, Shaker Hossain Siddiquee, additional superintendent of police (Gouripur Circle), said the two knew each other for the last 20 years when Sanny worked at a hotel in Dhaka's Gulshan and Dawsari visited Sanny's house on several occasions over the last couple of years.
After the incident, police detained Sanny in a drunken state and later showed him arrested in a case filed on Friday night with Gouripur Police Station under the Narcotics Control Act, said Abdullah Al Mamun, OC of the police station.
On Friday afternoon, Sanny was sent to jail after he was produced before the Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court in Mymensingh with a prayer for seven-day remand, said the OC.
Ishtiaq Mosharraf, a medical officer at Gouripur Upazila Health Complex, said the cause of the death would be known after the autopsy report is received.
Sanny's younger brother Abdur Rashid told this correspondent that five years ago, Sanny bought five decimals of land adjacent to Douhakhola School Bazar. With financial support from Dawsari, Sanny constructed a three-room building where the latter used to live.
