Bodies of two missing students recovered from Chattogram beach
The bodies of two university students who went missing on Monday evening were recovered from Banshkhali beach under Sitakunda upazila in Chattogram the same night.
The deceased were identified as Ali Hasan Maruf, 23, from Cumilla district, and Enayet Chowdhury, 22, of Kishoreganj's Bhairab upazila. Both were students of International Islamic University of Chittagong.
Ekram Hossain, a friend of the duo, said they went to Banshkhali beach on Monday evening and a strong tide washed Maruf and Enayet away while they were swimming.
Firoz Bhuiyan, officer of Kumira Fire Service Station, said that a local fire service team conducted a search operation but failed to trace them.
At about 10:30pm on Monday, locals spotted the bodies on the beach and informed the fire service.
After being informed, fire officials recovered the bodies of the students and handed them over to the police station.
