The throat-slit body of a 71-year-old man was recovered from his house at Sikta village in Joypurhat’s Kalai upazila on Friday.
The deceased was identified as Syed Ali Akhand.
Police detained the man’s two sons and their wives for interrogation, said Wasim Al Bari, officer-in-charge of Kalai Police Station.
Quoting locals, he said, Syed Ali used to live in his house alone after his wife’s death. He went to sleep Thursday night after dinner. Family members found his throat-slit dead body on his bed this morning.
On information, police recovered the body and sent it to Joypurhat General Hospital morgue for autopsy, added the OC.
