A poultry trade was found dead in Shahjadpur upazila on Monday, a day after he went missing.
Police recovered the floating body of Dabir Mollah, 60, son of late Tahaj Mollah of Jotpara village in the upazila, from the Hurasagar River.
Officer-in-charge of Shahjadpur Police Station Ataur Rahman said Dabir came out of their house on Sunday afternoon for going to a local bazaar. However, he did not return home.
Locals spotted his floating body in the river on Monday morning and informed police.
Later, law enforcers recovered the body and sent it to hospital morgue for autopsy, the OC said, adding that miscreants might have strangulated the poultry trader to death and dumped the body into the river.unb
