Police have recovered the body of a man from an under-construction building of Government Bangla College in the capital’s Mirpur area.
The remains were found in a state of decomposition on the fifth floor of the 10-storey building on Thursday night, according to Mirpur Darus Salam Police Station chief Tofayel Ahmed.
Police went to the college and recovered the body after security personnel reported detecting a foul smell in the building, said Tofayel.
“The body began decaying. We believe that the man died 10 to 12 days ago,” he added.
Police later sent the body to Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital for autopsy to determine the cause of death.
