Bangladesh MP murder case: probe reveals findings of blood stains inside refrigerator

MP Md Anwarul Azim Anar, who is an MP from Bangladesh, has been missing since he arrived to Kolkata on May 12 and he is now feared dead. He was last seen on May 13 in Kolkata’s Bidhannagar city, a day after he landed in India. It is reported that the MP went with his friends to his Bidhanagar home for a routine medical check-up.

Police probe reveals that there were blood stains found inside a refrigerator kept in the apartment at New Town in Kolkata’s Bidhannagar city. Azim is a three-time MP of Bangladesh Awami League. Azim was reported missing on May 18 from Baranagar in North 24 Parganas in Kolkata. However, it was only confirmed on Wednesday by both the authorities of West Bengal and Bangladesh that the MP was murdered. His body is yet to be recovered, police said.

Police scanned the CCTV footage of the residential campus in New Town where Azim had entered on May 13 with at least three persons. Police also found that the persons who accompanied Azim were Bangladesh nationals. Police also searched the flat, but they could not find Azim’s body. “There was a refrigerator inside the flat. Blood stains were found in the vegetable tray. Only forensic analysis would be able to ascertain whether the stains were of human blood, or the residents had bought some meat for consumption,” another officer said.

Bangladesh home minister Asaduzzaman Khan, on Wednesday told the media persons in Dhaka that three suspects have been arrested by the Bangladesh police in connection with the MP’s murder.
“We’re trying to catch a few more… According to the information we have so far, the people of our country [Bangladesh] are involved in the killing,” Khan was quoted to as saying by Daily Star newspaper.
“We are yet to find his body. The state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has taken over the case,” a senior IPS officer in Bidhannagar city police stated.
