Former police officer Babul Akter has not given confessional statement over the murder of his wife Mahmuda Khanam Mitu when he was produced before a Chittagong court.

Chittagong Metropolitan Magistrate Sarwar Jahan sent him to jail after he was produced before the court on completion of his five-day remand, reports Bangla Tribune.

Assistant Police Commissioner (Prosecution) Kazi Shahabuddin Ahmed of Chittagong Metropolitan Police, confirming the matter, said that Babul was taken to the court to record his statement under Section-164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.

“But he did not give any statement,” he added.

Former superintendent of police (SP) Babul and seven others were sued by his father-in-law in Chittagong over the murder on May 12, hours after the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) in its final report concluded that Babul chalked the plan to kill his wife after she had learnt about Babul’s extramarital affair. He was put on a five-day remand the same day.

Saidul Islam Shikder Shaku, another accused in the case, was arrested by RAB on May 12. He was placed on a four-day remand the following day.

According to the case, while stationed in Cox’s Bazar as an additional SP, Babul got familiar with the female NGO worker and afterwards, they developed a romantic affair. She used to text him, and Mitu saw some of them on his mobile phone.

As the dispute between Babul and Mitu worsened, he devised the plan to get her killed.

A month before the murder, Babul travelled to China to receive training. Mitu then found two books the woman had gifted to Babul. On several pages of the books they wrote letters addressing one another. Through the development, Mitu came to know about their close relation.

Mitu was hacked and shot dead near the GEC Intersection in Chittagong on June 5, 2016, when she was on her way to drop her son to the school.

Immediately after the grisly murder, investigators said militants might have settled a score against Babul as he conducted several successful anti-terrorism drives. However, they said later that professional killers were behind it and that one Kamrul Islam Musa, alias Musa Sikdar, had hired them and plotted the murder.

Babul was in Dhaka at the time to join Police Headquarters after being promoted. Just before that he was stationed in Chittagong.

He lodged a case accusing unidentified persons with the Panchlaish police in the port city. However, the PBI found his involvement in the killing while investigating into the case.

The PBI has recently submitted a 575-age probe report to a court, revealing that the criminal act was actually a “’contract killing” masterminded by Babul himself. The former SP had spent Tk300,000 for the murder.

Babul was relieved of his duties on September 6, 2016, days after he submitted a resignation letter.
