Body of youth missing in Khilgaon canal found a km away
Body of the youth, who went missing after falling in the Jhilpar canal in Dhaka's Khilgaon area yesterday, was found today.
Fire fighters recovered body of the 21-year-old Abul Hossain around 9:00am from one kilometre away, said Abdul Mannan, stations officer of Khilgaon Fire Station.
He slipped into the canal when he was collecting discarded bottles from the canal around 9:30am yesterday.
Fire fighters along with divers rushed there to rescue him but could not trace him the whole day as the canal was clogged with waste, hampering their rescue operations.
