Members of the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) has visited the Hathazari madrasa as a part of their investigation into the alleged killing of Hefazat-e-Islam founder Shah Ahmad Shafi.

The PBI team, led by its Divisional Superintendent Md Iqbal Hossain, spoke to a number of people, including Hefazat's incumbent chief Junaid Babunagari, during the visit on Tuesday morning.

Md Iqbal Hossain later told reporters that they had visited the spot in compliance with a court order as part of their investigation.

"We have spoken to some people, but we cannot say much for the sake of our investigation," he said. "We are working to submit the investigation report within the time stipulated by the court."

Babunagari said they had cooperated with the investigators, declining to comment further. "We have given our statement in the press conference," he said.

Shafi's brother-in-law Mohammad Mohiuddin filed the murder case with Chattogram Judicial Magistrate Court on December 17, against 36 including Hefazat's incumbent Joint Secretary General Mamunul Haque.

The court ordered the PBI to file an investigation report within a month.

Shafi passed away on September 18 last year at a hospital in Dhaka.
