Sadar police recovered the body and sent it to Sadar Hospital morgue for autopsy.
Saleha Begum, mother of the deceased, said: "Sagor used to work at a tile shop in Dhaka. He was recently released from Madaripur Jail. Since he went back to Dhaka, we lost contact with him. Now I don't understand how he has turned up dead."
Madaripur Additional Superintendent of Police, Badrul Alam Molla, said: "Sagor had 15 robbery, mugging, and drug possession related charges filed against him. He was wanted by the police for a while. We suspect he was killed in a dispute during the distribution of stolen loot. We are investigating the incident further."
