The bodies of two youths, who went missing two days ago, were recovered from the Jamuna River in Nagarbari river port of Pabna on Monday.

 

The deceased were identified as Panna Sadar, 28, and his cousin Ashiq alias Piyash Sheikh, 20, of the district.

 

The bodies were found floating in the river near Pratappur Jame Masjid around 7am shortly after the departure of a cargo vessel docked there, said Nagarbari Naval Police Outpost in-charge Shariful Islam.

 

The duo went missing after jumping into the river from a boat on Saturday fearing collision with a vessel near Nagarbari river port.

 

The bodies will be handed over to their respective families after completing legal procedures, said the official.
