Fahim Saleh, owner of the motorcycle company ‘GoKada‘ and co-founder of the ride-sharing app Pathao has been found dead.
According to New York Daily News, NY police have retrieved the body from his New York apartment, the Lower East Side about 3:30pm local time.
Beside the millionaire tech entrepreneur’s headless body, there was an electric saw, police reported.
The deceased owned the property, which was recently bought for $2.25 million.
The alarm came up when one of Saleh ‘s siblings became worried after not hearing for a day from him.
She went to the seventh-floor unit to check on her brother only to find him brutally assassinated.
The electrical saw used to cut the body was already stuck in. The body parts were allegedly placed into different plastic bags.
An elevator surveillance camera may have captured the last moments the victim has had, sources said.
It shows the victim coming into the elevator on Monday, quickly followed by a second man, dressed in a suit, wearing gloves, a hat and a mask over his face.
Fahim collapsed to the floor after most obviously being shot or stunned as soon as he stepped into his home.
Police says a professional carried out the murder.
Gokada founder Fahim Saleh is dead
Fahim started his career with a prank calling website, then moved on to create Pathao, one of the most successful ride-sharing ventures in Bangladesh, around 2016.
Most recently, he started Gokada, a motorcycle ride-sharing company in Lagos, Nigeria, but the company faced setbacks and mass layoffs after Lagos banned companies like his in January.
“We are shocked and saddened to hear the reports of the death of Fahim Saleh, one of the founding members of the Pathao team,”
said Sayeda Nabila Mahabub, director (marketing and public relations) at Pathao.
“Fahim believed in the potential for technology to transform lives in Bangladesh and beyond.
He saw the promise in us when all we had was a common purpose and a shared vision.
He was, and will forever remain, an incredible inspiration for Pathao and our entire ecosystem,” she added.
