A woman and her two children were found dead at their Dakkhinkhan residence on Friday evening.
Locals identified them Munni, 38, her son Farhan, 12, and daughter Laiva, 3. They said Munni’s husband Liton is an engineer of Bangladesh Telegraph & Telephone Board.
The family has been living on the third floor of a five-storied building beside the KC school at Prem Bagan area since 2011.
Locals said a relative of Munni was looking for her since Thursday. He could not reach her over phone.
Later on Friday afternoon, the relative came to the apartment but found the door locked from inside. He contacted police as no one responded to repeated calls. Police broke the door and found three bodies.
It is still unclear how they died.
