Bangladeshi MP murder case: Dhaka police to pay a visit to Kolkata for probe

The Bangladeshi MP, Md Anwarul Azim Anar was brutally murdered days after he landed in Kolkata. The Kolkata police is currently probing his case. A team of the Detective Branch of Dhaka Metropolitan Police will visit India for investigating the Bangladeshi lawmaker Anwarul Azim Anar’s death.

Mohammad Harun-or-Rashid, chief of the Detective Branch, told a press conference on Saturday. He said that he along with his officers of the Detective Branch “will leave Dhaka for India tonight or tomorrow dawn to investigate the murder incident. As of now, a four member is currently investigating the case.” Anar was a three-time parliamentarian from the Jhenaidah-4 segment in Bangladesh. He was also the chosen president of Awami League’s Kaliganj sub-district unit. Anar had left Dhaka on May 12 for undergoing his medical treatment at Kolkata, from where he went missing the next day.

According to the Kolkata police, the circumstantial evidence indicated that the Bangladeshi MP was first strangled to death and then his body was chopped into many pieces and dumped in different parts of the city. The traces of his body parts are yet to be found. A Bangladesh court on Friday remanded three suspects to an eight-day police trial for their alleged involvement in Anar’s brutal murder.

On the other hand, the West Bengal police have recently claimed to have arrested a Bangladeshi from North 24 Parganas district, who works as a butcher in Mumbai, for his involvement in the cold-blooded murder.
