Police recovered the hanging body of a student of Chittagong University from a cottage (privately-run mess) on the campus on Thursday morning.
The deceased was identified as Jahangir Raju, hailing from Sonaimuri in Noakhali district and a student of Economics Department of 2014-15 session.
Sajjad Hossain, a student of Law Department, said that as Raju’s phone was found switched off for a long time his brother contacted with his friends over phone.
His friends knocked the door of his room around 8:30 am. Getting no response they peeped through the window and saw his hanging body.
On information, police recovered the body, said Belal Uddin Jahangir, officer-in-charge of Hathazari Police Station.
Proctor Ali Azgar Chowdhury said that it is not clear yet whether it was suicide or murder.
