Body recovered from Hatirjheel lake: victim identified as student of Malaysian university

A body recovered on January 14 from Hatirjheel lake and subsequently buried unclaimed was primarily identified as Sadman Sakib Rafi, a student of Malaysia's Asia Pacific University who remained missing since January 13.

His mother Monowara Hossain identified him from his clothes and photographs police took after recovering the body from the lake, said Sub-inspector of Hatirjheel Police Station Harun-or-Rashid.

After autopsy at Dhaka Medical College, the body was kept at the mortuary for a month and was buried unclaimed, he said.

Sadman's mother earlier filed a missing diary (GD) with Bhatara Police Station after the 23-year-old left his home in the capital's Bashundhara residential area on January 13 and did not return.

According to the GD, Sadman left the house on the morning of January 13 without informing anyone. His mobile phone was found switched off.

Monowara Hossain earlier said that her son returned to Dhaka from Malaysia in September 2019. But he could not go back to Malaysia due to the coronavirus situation.

Among three siblings, Sadman is the youngest. He was born and raised in Saudi Arabia. He was admitted to APU in Malaysia three years ago.
