Police have recovered the dead body of a television producer from a roadside opposite the Police Plaza in Dhaka’s Hatirjheel.
The deceased, Abdul Bari, 29, was working as a senior production executive at private television channel DBC News.
Dhaka Metropolitan Police Additional Deputy Commissioner Nazmul Hassan Feroze confirmed the matter to the media.
He was killed around seven to eight hours ago, says police.
According to DBC News, the murder is likely due to pre-existing enmity.
Police have recovered the knife used to kill him but are yet to make an arrest, reports DBC.
ADC Hssan told DBC that passersby called the police when they saw the body laying by the lake.
“It is being suspected that the attackers stabbed him,” he said, adding that Bari went down to the lake to save himself.
When he came up, they slit his throat and left his belonging including the knife, moneybag and mobile phone at the scene, said ADC Hassan.
His body has been sent to Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital for autopsy.
