Local police have detained four persons for their suspected involvement in murder.

Thirty two-year-old Abdur Razzak’s body was recovered early Tuesday near the railway station in Yasinpur area, said Natore police OC Mizanur Rahman.

Razzak was a fish farmer and local media reported he was an activist of the ruling Awami League’s youth affiliate in Natore.

But the police could not verify his political affiliations.

Quoting locals, OC Rahman told that Razzak went to Yasinpur area early in the morning.

His body was recovered when locals spotted it. “He was battered with iron bars and hacked with sharp weapons.”

OC Rahman said that they have detained four people for their suspected involvement with the murder—Nadim Hossain, 23, Momin Hossain, 32, Kamal Hossain, 26, and Mitthun Ali, 24.
