The police recovered the body of an Ansar member named Sameer Chandra Das (40) from the river in Muradnagar, Comilla. He was missing for two days. Locals saw the body floating in the river Gomti in Bakhrabad area on Monday afternoon and informed the police. Samir is the son of Chandra Das, the shepherd of Chaishfullakandi village of Upazila. Sameer’s wife Soma Rani Dash said that her husband Sameer was working in Ansar VDP in Chittagong. Came home on Wednesday for vacation. His friend Dalim called him from home to sell pigeons on Saturday afternoon. After selling the pigeons, when he came to Sameer’s house, Dalim called him again in the evening. Late at night, Sameer’s mobile phone was called several times. But Dalim received the phone. Dalim said, there is no problem with Sameer. Later, when he called again, he said that Sameer would come home after a while. At night, Dalim came home with Sameer’s used shoes and mobile phone. Soma also said that Dalim told us that Sameer was gambling with his friends on the banks of Gomti river. At that time, when an unknown person shined a flashlight on the gamblers, they jumped into the Gomti river, thinking it was the police. Dalim’s personal mobile phone was contacted several times to inquire about this, but his statement was not available. Muradnagar Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Kamruzzaman Talukdar said, the body was recovered and sent to Comilla Medical College Hospital Morgue for autopsy. Efforts are underway to unravel the mystery of this incident.
