Police have recovered three bodies from three separate districts.

In Joypurhat, police recovered a schoolgirl's body from Chhoto Jamuna River in Panchhbibi upazila around 10pm Monday - 12 hours after she went missing from Joypurhat town.

The deceased Ritu Pal, daughter of Bishwajit Pal, was an eighth-grader in Joypurhat Sadar Upazila High School. 

Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Panchbibi police station Md Mansur Rahman said Ritu went to her school Monday morning but did not return home. Although her relatives searched for her, they could not find her whereabouts. 

Later Ritu's father Bishwajit filed a general diary (GD) with Joypurhat Sadar police station. Around 10pm on the same day, locals notified police after spotting a body floating on Chhoto Jamuna River, near Shashanghat in Panchbibi. 

However, police are yet to find any clue that might lead to unearthing the reason behind the girl's mysterious death.

Police recovered the body of a transport worker from a jute field in Gobindakati village in Jhaudanga village under the Sadar upazila, in Satkhira, Tuesday morning. 

Deceased Alamgir Hossain Alam, 35, also from Gobindakati village, was a supervisor for Satkhira's Sangram Paribahan.

Satkhira Sadar police station OC Mustafizur Rahman said they recovered Alamgir's body based on information provided by the locals.

Alamgir's body bore marks of being hacked with a sharp weapon, and his neck was in a noose, the OC said. However, he could not confirm the identities of those who might be involved with the murder.

"We have undertaken an investigation," Mustafizur said. "His body has been sent to Satkhira Sadar Hospital for autopsy." 

Yet another body was recovered from Kotalipara in Gopalganj. Police recovered octogenarian Saheb Ali's body from Sitaikundu canal in Kotalipara on Tuesday morning. 

Saheb was the son of the late Kuti Mia in Sitaikundu village.

Confirming the incident, Kotalipara OC Sheikh Lutfur Rahman said: "Locals informed us after they spotted Saheb's body underneath Sitaikundu bridge. Saheb was a begger. We are investigating the matter."
