    Body of Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant contractor's driver found in Pabna

    March 27, 2023 - United News of Bangladesh


      Pabna, March 25 -- The decomposed body of a driver of a sub-contractor organisation involved with Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP) in Pabna, was on Saturday recovered inside a vehicle on the banks of the Shilaidaha River two days after he went missing.

      The deceased was identified as Md Samrat Hossain Khan, 25, son of Abu Bakkar of Pabna's Iswardi upazila. He was the driver of sub-contractor 'Nikimos' of the RNPP Project.

      The victim's father lodged a General Diary at Ishwardi police station in this connection as he was missing since March 23.

      Locals said they spotted a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado vehicle parked on the bank of the river for the past couple of days.

      On Saturday morning, they smelt a bad odor spreading from the vehicle and informed police in this regard.

      Aurobind Sarkar, officer-in-charge of Ishwardi police station, said they recovered the decomposed body wrapped in a gunny sack from the vehicle and sent it to Pabna Sadar hospital morgue for autopsy.

      The reason for the death will be known after getting the autopsy report, he said, adding that the body bore marks of several injuries.

      The OC said they detained a suspect named Sima Khatun, wife of the victim's friend Momen Khan, who earlier used to work with Samrat, in this connection.

      During primary interrogation, the detainee admitted that she killed Samrat with a hammer to take revenge for beating her earlier.

      The OC said an extramarital affair or exchange of money might have led to the killing. Published by HT Digital Content Services with permission from United News of Bangladesh. For any query with respect to this article or any other content requirement, please contact Editor at
