Faruk Hossain, Additional Superintendent of Narayanganj Police, said, "The locals had informed the law enforcers when they saw the bodies lying on the road. Police recovered the bodies around 11:00am and sent these to the Narayanganj General Hospital morgue,"
The several injury marks have been found in the heads, chests, throats and hands. The three men wore trousers and shirts, the police official said.

Relatives of the victims, however, claimed that the trio remained missing

 after they went to Shimul's home district Jhenaidah on Wednesday night after men in civil dress identifying themselves as DB personnel picked them up from a bus.
Shimul's wife Ayesha Akhter Anni rushed to the hospital morgue based on news of Facebook and TV channels and  identified the bodies.
She walled down and said that have a daughter and her husband used to run a 'small jhut business with Babu while Shohag was engaged with cable business.
Plainclothes used to go the Ferry Terminal by a microbus and a car. The  police picked up her husband and others from a bus at Daulatdia ghat on Wednesday night. Since then, Shimul's cell phone was switched off, Anni alleged.
