Businessman found dead in factory
Police yesterday recovered the body of a businessman from his thread factory in the capital's Dakkhinkhan.
The dead Abdul Kuddus was aged around 50.
Acting on information from his son, police recovered the body from the factory at Taltola, Nordapara and sent it to Dhaka Medical College Hospital morgue for an autopsy.
Law enforcers said they found the businessman's throat slit.
Victim's son Md Liton said his father looked after the business and used to stay at the factory with his nephew Sumon, 18.
"I was at my relative's house in Kishoreganj and my father phoned me around 3:00pm on Friday. He asked me to go to the factory the next morning," said Liton over the phone.
Reaching the factory along with one of his uncles yesterday afternoon, he found the main gate locked from outside.
They opened the gate with a duplicate key and noticed that some eight sacks of thread were missing.
"As we searched for the sacks, we found his bloodstained body under a pile of threads," added Liton.
Victim's relatives suspect Sumon's involvement in the homicide as he went into hiding following the incident and his cell phone was switched off.
Sumon had joined the factory one and a half months ago.
