Police have recovered dead bodies of a couple from a septic tank in Tangail sadar upazila's Rasulpur union.
The deceased are identified as Anil Chandra Das, 65, and his wife Kalpana Das, 55.
Anil was a retired teacher of Rasulpur High School while Kalpana was a homemaker. The only son of the couple works at a bank in Dhaka.
According to local sources, neighbours of the deceased couple entered their house after getting no response from inside around 10am on Thursday morning.
After searching every nook and cranny inside, the neighbours discovered their dead bodies dumped in the septic tank of the house and informed police around 12pm.
Tangail Model police station OC Nazmul Haque Bhuiyan told the Dhaka Tribune that the dead bodies have been sent to the morgue of Tangail General Hospital for autopsy.
“Presumably, some miscreants entered into their house at night and killed the couple,” the OC added
A case filing in this connection was under process when the report was being filed.
