The decomposed body of a woman was found in the septic tank of a government secondary school in Jashore Sadar upazila Thursday morning.
The deceased was identified as Fahima Begum, 35, daughter of Anshar Ali of Sat Pakhiya village in Tala upazila of Satkhira district.
Narendrapur police camp in-charge Supravat Mandal said the woman's brother identified the deceased as Fahima, a female brick kiln worker.
Shariful Islam, the woman's brother, said, "Fahima and her husband Jahangir Hossain worked as daily wagers at Dafadar brick kiln in Narendrapur. Fahima was physically and mentally abused by Jahangir."
Last month, when asked about his sister, Jahangir didn't respond properly. "So, I suspect he killed my sister and dumped the body in the septic tank."
Shiv Pad Biswas, headmaster of Narendrapur Secondary School, where the body was found, said that they opened the septic tank after foul smell was emanating and informed cops who fished it out.
Kotwali police station officer-in-charge Tajul Islam said the body was sent to the Jashore General Hospital morgue for an autopsy.
