09 June,2016

RTNN News Desk: Jane Alam, driver of a microbus, which was believed to be kept standby for cover during the killing of police official Babul Akhter’s wife Mahmuda Khanam Mitu, in police interrogation said he witnessed the murder.

Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) Additional police commissioner Devdas Bhattyacharya in a press briefing at CMP headquarters on Thursday afternoon confirmed Jane Alam’s confession.

Police also sought 10 days for quizzing Abu Nasar, who was held on Wednesday for his alleged involvement in the killing of Mitu.

Devdas Bhattyacharya during the press meet at about 12:15pm said the microbus was seized and its driver, Jane Alam was arrested on Wednesday night.

But the additional commissioner declined to give details about who was on the microbus during the murder for the sake of investigation.

Devdas Bhattyacharya also claimed Abu Nasar is an activist of Islami Chhatra Shibir.

Earlier on Wendesday, Detective Branch of CMP arrested Abu Nasar from Farhadabad area of Hathazari in Chittagong.

On 6 June, the law-enforcers claimed to have recovered the motorcycle used in murder from Solokbahar area in Chittagong.

Later the motorcycle was handed over to the Detective Branch of police.

However, police found that the motorcycle was stolen on 8 May, and the owner of the bike lodged a general diary in this connection. Shahidullah Baburchi, the owner of the motorcycle, was interrogated by police.

On 5 June, three miscreants riding motorcycle shot Mahmuda Khanam Mitu to death in one of the Chittagong’s busiest area JEC intersection in front of her six-year-old son. Mahmuda was going to put her son, Mahir, on the school bus at about 6:45am.

Her husband, Babul Akter, is playing a leading role in investigating a spate of murders committed by militants.

Babul Akter filed a case against three motorcycle riders and some unidentified persons in this connection.

Babul Akter was recently posted to the police headquarters in Dhaka. He has received threats and he was asked to step up his personal security.

Earlier, he was the additional deputy commissioner (ADC) of Chittagong Metropolitan Police.

In October last year, Babul Akter and his team arrested top JMB militant Mohammad Javed along with four others and seized a huge cache of explosives from their hideout, according to police.

Police say around 40 people have been killed by homegrown Islamists in the past three years, with a spike in attacks in recent weeks.
