Gazipur: A college student was found dead near Dhirasram rail station in the city on Friday.
The deceased was identified as Abu Bakar alias Zillu, a fourth year honours student of Sheikh Amanullah Degree College in Kalaroa and a resident of Sharsha upazila in Jessore district.
Railway police sources, quoting Zillu’s friend Jahangir Alam, said Zillu and Jahangir had come to Dhaka for taking part at a recruitment test of Pran Company on Tuesday.
After the examination, Zillu and Jahangir got onto the roof of ‘Chitra Express’ train at the Airport Rail Station to go to Jessore around 8.00 pm on Thursday.

Getting information from Jahangir, railway police recovered the body of Zillu from the outer signal of the station and sent it to Dhaka Medical College Hospital morgue for an autopsy.
