The body of one among three missing passengers of a launch that sank two days ago has been recovered. The deceased was identified as Manik Madbar, 35, a garment trader, from Chhabbish Para village under Jazira Upazila of Shariatpur.

Louhajang police chief Helal Uddin said the body was found near Rishibari of Louhajang on Saturday noon.

Manik fell into the river after the launch, MV Parvin, hit an anchored ferry due to strong current soon after it left the pier around 7:30pm on Thursday.

The two others are yet to be traced.
