The body of Mahmudul Hassan Tarek, who joined New Age as an apprentice correspondent on January 2 and was killed on the railway on Monday night, was sent to his village home at Panchari in Khagrachari on Tuesday for his burial.
The mutilated body of Mahmudul, 26, also a student of philosophy department at Dhaka University for 2005-2006 sessions, was found on the railway near Karwanbazar level crossing on Monday night a few minutes after intercity train Parabat Express passed the crossing, Kamalapur general railway police said.
His friends and family members rushed to the Dhaka Medical College morgue on Tuesday morning.
Following his post mortem, the body of Mahmudul, son of Habibur Rahman of Colony Para at Panchari in Khagrachari, was kept on the Dhaka University campus for some time for his admirers to have the last glimpse.
Dhaka University assistant professor Mohammad Azam, who among other rushed to the DMC, said that he found Tarek as a meritorious youth having sound knowledge in politics, history, philosophy and aestheticism.
He used to write poetry and stories, Azam said.
A book of him was supposed to be published by Sangbed publication during the upcoming Ekusey Book Fair in February, his friends said.
‘Myth er Pakhira,’ a collection of seven poets was published by his initiative in 2010, his friends said.
His cousin Nur-e-Alam Siddique said Mahmudul will be buried today following his namaj-e-zajana at Panchari.
An unnatural death case was filed with the general railway police at Kamalapur, its assistant subinspector Sirajul Islam said.
Sirajul said they kept his wallet for further investigation.
‘We did not find any suicide note from his possession,’ he said, adding, ‘we are investigating into the matter.’
Tarek was fifth among his two brothers and six sisters.
