Khagrachhari: A housewife has been found buried under her own bed at their house in Shantila area of Panchhari upazila.
Police recovered the body of Shahana Begum, 35, second wife of Jaru Miah of the area, on Wednesday night.
They also arrested victim’s stepson, Zahidul, in this regard. However, Jaru Miah and his first wife Jahanara Begum went into hiding after the body recovery.
Victim’s brother, Joynal Abedin, said he had found the room of Shahana locked from outside when he went to their house on Wednesday afternoon on information that she went missing.
Smelling something fishy, he informed the matter to local union parishad member Hossain.
Later, the room was opened in presence of the UP member when a chunk of loose soil was found beneath the cot.
On information, police rushed in and removed the loose soil only to find the body of Shahana around 10:30pm.
Officer-in-charge of Panchhari Police Station M Abdul Jabbar said Shahana might have been killed over a family feud.
Joynal Abedin filed a case against Jaru Miah, Jahanara Begum and their two sons Zahidul and Jahangir in this connection.
