Highway ASP’s body found on Turag bank
  The body of a senior highway police official was found dumped near Birulia Bridge on the bank of the Turag River near Rupnagar in Savar, on the outskirts of Dhaka, Wednesday morning. After being informed by locals, the police recovered the body of Highway Police (Savar zone) Assistant Superintendent Mizanur Rahman Talukdar, 50, around 11am, Syed Shahid Alam, officer-in-charge of Rupnagar police station, told the Dhaka Tribune. The police could ascertain the deceased’s identity after recovering his two mobile phone sets. “Unknown miscreants might have dumped ASP Mizanur’s body there after strangling him as a rope was found twisted tightly around his neck. We are looking into the matter,” Shahid added. Shahid also said the body was clad in a tartan shirt and police pants, while the upper part of his uniform was found inside a bag abandoned near the body. The key of Mizanur’s private car was recovered from the clothes he wore, he said, adding that they pulled a strip of cloth out of his mouth. “Generally, Mizanur used his personal car for official purposes as there were no vehicles allotted for him. Yesterday, he left home around 5am without his vehicle,” Shahid quoted the deceased’s family as saying. Investigators said they were trying to know how the body was taken to the spot, and why he went out without his vehicle. Sub-inspector Mominur Rahman said ASP Mizanur was supposed to visit Savar highway as Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader was scheduled to go there in the morning to oversee security measures taken ahead of the Eid-ul-Fitr. However, a suspicion has arisen that Mizanur might have been in trouble over a possible family feud, since none of his family or relatives visited the spot even after hearing the news. High-ups from law enforcement agencies including Rapid Action Battalion, Criminal Investigation Department and Police Bureau of Investigation rushed in and visited the spot. The body was sent to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital morgue for an autopsy.

He has a daughter who has been a studying at a college and a son studying in Class-I, said his nephew Shamim Sheikh. “Mizanur had no animosity with anybody.
