Bodies of couple found inside car in capital

The bodies of a couple were recovered from their private car in the Borobari area of Gazipur on Thursday.

The deceased, Ziaur Rahman Mamun, the head teacher of Tongi's Shaheed Smriti School, and his wife, Jolly Akhter, an assistant teacher at Amjad Ali High School, were found dead in the South Khailkur Bogartek area on Thursday, according to Gacha Police Station chief Nanda Lal Chowdhury. The couple resided in Tongi's Kamarjuri.

"They left home for work in their car on Wednesday morning.   They were on their way back around 6:20 pm. But since then, there hadn't been any traces of them," their son Md Miraj told reporters.

The family looked for them throughout the night, but to no avail. A few locals later discovered the couple lying inside their car and reported the matter to the police in the morning.

Law enforcers went to the area and rushed the couple to the Tairunnessa Memorial Medical College Hospital in Boardbazar. They were later taken to a hospital in Dhaka's Uttara, where doctors declared them dead, according to Miraj.

The process is underway to send the bodies to Gazipur's Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmad Medical College Hospital for autopsy, said OC Nanda Lal.

Police said that there were no obvious wounds on the bodies.

Meraj claimed to have spoken to his parents in the evening on the phone. He also informed the cops later that night when his parents didn't return home and their phones were switched off.
