Woman found dead in hotel

Police recovered the body of a woman in a hotel at Motijheel in the city last night.

The dead was Sufia Begum, 22, wife of Azam Uddin of Baharchhara in Cox's Bazar.

Sufia and Azam checked in at hotel Jonaki International on Inner Circular Road in the early hours yesterday, said police quoting hotel staff.

The hoteliers said they thought the couple had gone out as their room was locked from outside. But as they did not return until evening, they informed police.

Police found the body on the floor with marks on injuries in the head. They suspect she was strangled.

Azam is absconding.
