CHATTOGRAM: Police recovered the bodies of a woman and her two children from their flat on the fourth floor of a building in the city’s Mohammadpur area on Friday.

The deceased were identified as Sumita Khatun, 30, her seven-year-old daughter Jannatun Ainun and two-and-half-year old son Shan Babu, of Kazipur upazila in Sirajganj district.

Deputy Commissioner (North) Mokhlesur Rahman of Chattogram Metropolitan Police (CMP) said on receiving information they recovered the hanging bodies of Sumita and her son while daughter’s body was on the floor at a residence in Mohammadpur area under Panchlaish Police Station at around 9:00am.

They sent the bodies to Chattogram Medical College Hospital morgue for autopsy, he said.

It primarily seemed that the woman might have killed her two children then she committed suicide over a family feud centring on extra-marital affairs of her husband, said the DC.

However, they detained the deceased’s husband Sohel Rana who was outside of the residence for quizzing, he said adding the investigation is going on to reveal the reasons whether it’s murder or suicide.

Husband Sohel Rana also admitted that he had a family feud with his wife Sumita, Mokhles said.  

Filing of case in this connection was under process, he added.
