Police have recovered the throat-slit body of a female teacher from Chandpur's Water Development Board staff quarter area, on Sunday evening.
The victim, Jayanti Chakrabarty, 45, was a teacher of Shologhar Government Primary School.
Mostafa Kamal Babul, headmaster of the school, said Jayanti was teaching there since 2014. She had taken a day off on Sunday, he added.
"Students who went to her house for home tuition that day found her lying in a heap of blood on the floor inside," Babul said.
Later, Additional Superintendent of Chandpur Police Mizanur Rahman, and Officer-in charge of Chandpur model police station Nasim Uddin rushed to the spot. They declined to comment without further investigation.
Jayanti's husband Alak Chakrabarty was in Dhaka during the incident, where their son studies at the Notre Dame College, the eldest daughter at the University of Asia Pacific, and the youngest daughter at another college.
