Police have recovered the bodies of a mother and her two children with their throats slit from a house in Sylhet.

The father of the family was rescued in critical condition and admitted to a hospital, police said.

The incident took place at Binnakandi village in Fatehpur Union of Gowainghat Upazila on Wednesday morning, said OC Abdul Ahad of Gowainghat Police Station.
