Mysterious death of couple
Police recovered the bodies of a couple from Madan upazila of Netrakona yesterday.
The deceased were identified as Nandu Mir, 60, and his wife Hima Akter, 45, of Balali village in the upazila.
Quoting the victims' neighbours, Officer in charge of Madan Police Station Ferdous Alam said Nandu, a farmer and son of late Shamsu Mir of Alamsree village, had been living near his in-laws' house since their marriage around 25 years ago.
The couple has an eight-year-old boy and a five-year-old daughter.
Like the other days, the couple and their two children took their meal on Monday night and went to sleep.
Finding no response in the morning, one of their neighbours called Nandu, but in vain.
At one stage, the two kids woke up and opened the door.
Locals later entered the house and found Hima's blood stained body on the floor and Nandu hanging from the ceiling of the room, the OC said.
On information, police rushed to the spot, recovered the bodies and sent those to Netrakona General Hospital for autopsy.
Later, separate teams of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) from Mymensingh visited the crime scene.
The OC said the incident might have occurred due to family feud and the children were in sleep then.
