Police revealed on Monday the recovery of human body parts from an underwater location, that may presumably belong to Luthufar, the expatriate worker that went missing earlier from Lhaimagu, Shaviyani Atoll.

According to the authorities, the dismembered parts were discovered during a dive conducted by Police, upon receiving information as to possible whereabouts.

However, Police have not disclosed any further details pertaining to the investigation.

Lhaimagu's Council President Abdul Ghanee Ibrahim stated that the work to recover the body, conducted by Police, was still underway and that the parts were discovered around the outer edge of the island's house reef.

The authorities had previously announced the arrest of two other Bangladeshi workers in connection to Luthufar's murder. However, local news outlet Mihaaru alleges that information was received suggesting that all the Bangladeshi workers on board the vessel were later arrested.

A total of five Bangladeshi workers were employed on the boat, including the deceased.

Mihaaru further stated that sources indicated that all of the suspects were currently being detained at a police station in Funadhoo, Shaviyani Atoll.

Luthufar, having boarded the boat dubbed 'Kurimagu' (loosely translates to future) a month prior to the incident, was residing full time on the vessel.
