Bodies of six young people were recoveredby police from the Diabari area in Dhaka and Panchrukhi area of the Araihazar upazila in the Naryanganj district on Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Officer In-charge (OC) of Turag police Nurul Muttakin told the Dhaka Tribune they rushed to the areasafter locals informed of two bodies lying in the bushes around sector 16 of Rajuk Uttara Residential Area around 10:30pm on Saturday.
The bodies were later sent to Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College for autopsy. Considering their state of decomposition, police suspect the bodies had been lying there for several days.
The youths whose identities are yet to be disclosed, could be aged from 30-35, the OC informed.
"We are trying to find out their identities," the OC added. "We will know the cause of death once we receive the autopsy reports."
Meanwhile, Additional Superintendent of Police (crime) of Naryanganj Abdullah Al Mamun said they found four bodies from the Panchrukhi area near the Dhaka-Sylhet highway, around 5am Sunday.
Police also recovered two pistols, one round of bullets and seized a microbus from the spot. The bodies were sent to the Araihazar General Hospital for autopsy, he said.
"We suspect the bodies were kept there after they were killed somewhere else," Abdullah said. "But we will know further details after we get the autopsy results."
He added: "All of the deceased had signs of blunt trauma to the head; none of them bore any bullet injuries. We think they were killed in some kind of an internal conflict."
An investigation has been launched to discover their identities, he said.
