2 placed on 7-day remand in Mitu murder case
A Chittagong court has placed two suspects on a seven-day remand for interrogation regarding the brutal murder of Mahmuda Khanam Mitu, wife of Superintendent of Police Babul Akter. Chittagong Metropolitan Magistrate Harun Ur Rashid granted the remand for former Shibir man Abu Nosor Gunnu and one of the prime suspects Shah Zaman Robin on Sunday after police petitioned for 10 days of remand, said Nirmalendu Bikash Chakraborty, additional deputy commissioner at Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP). Meanwhile, Assistant Commissioner Md Kamruzzaman of the Detective Branch (DB) of police have been appointed the new investigation officer of the case, said police sources. The new investigation officer attended the remand hearing at the court yesterday, where he presented the documents related to the arrests of the suspects as per the court's direction, Nirmalendu told the Dhaka Tribune. Earlier on Thursday, the court asked the investigation officer of Mitu murder case to submit relevant documents of arrests made, including the call detail records used to track Gunnu. Gunnu, caretaker of a local Shrine in Chittagong's Hathazari upazila, was arrested by detectives in Farhadabad, Hathazari on Wednesday. Robin, who police claim is one of the trio who killed Mitu before fleeing the scene on a motorcycle, was arrested in the city's Shital Jharna on Saturday morning. Other than these arrests, there have been no visible progress in the murder investigation since it took place on June 5. The DB is currently investigating the murder, but the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI), Criminal Investigation Department (CID), and Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit have been working to hunt down the killers as well. Police have yet to recover the firearms and the sharp weapons that the killers used to kill Mitu. Mitu's phone, which went missing and could possibly have vital clue regarding her murder, has not been found either.

New investigation officer appointed

Md Kamruzzaman was made the new investigation officer of Mitu murder case on Saturday night, replacing DB Inspector Kazi Rakib, CMP Deputy Commissioner Faruk Ahmed told the Dhaka Tribune. Meanwhile, five different committees have been formed by the CMP to assist with the investigation of the case, said CMP sources. “The committees have been formed for extensive investigation of the murder case,” Kamruzzaman told the Dhaka Tribune. However, he could not give any details regarding the members of the committees. “I have not received the documents yet,” he said.
