OC Mintu Mia said the body was sent for an autopsy and legal action in this regard will be taken after receiving a complaint.
Deceased’s brother Sohag said his brother had an affair with a local girl named Jerin and he got upset since her family married off Jerin to a man living in Jamalpur.
“My brother just used to go and sit beside Jerin’s father’s house. He was not involved in any extra-marital affair," said Sohag.
