A man jumped from the third floor of a residential hotel and died on the spot during a Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) drive early yesterday.
The deceased was identified as Anwar Hossain, 28, an alleged sex-workers' agent in the hotel, Lodge Inn, at Kakoli in Gulshan.
Officer-in-charge (OC) Kamal Uddin of Gulshan Police Station said Anwar jumped to the rail lines behind the hotel and died on the spot while a team of Rab-1 was conducting drives at the hotel and another one, Dhaka Inn, adjacent to it around 1:00am.

The OC said on information they recovered Anwar's body from the rail lines and sent it to Dhaka Medical College Hospital morgue for autopsy.
