A former Qatar Airways air hostess was found dead at her West Rajabazar residence in the city on Tuesday.
Police recovered the decomposed body of Humaira Zahan Sifti alias Sukhi, 35, from her 2nd floor residence of a six-storey building at 44/8 West Rajabazar in the afternoon, said officer-in-charge of Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station GG Biswas.
He said neighbours smelt bad adour coming out of the flat where Humaira had been living, and informed police.
Later, a police team went to the flat around 4pm and recovered the decomposed body after breaking open its main door.
Humaira was a former flight attendant of Qatar Airways, the OC said, adding that the reason behind the death is still not clear.
