He said: “We interrogated Pradeep for a long time. We are now verifying the information he gave with ours. We hope that we will be able to submit the report within the government stipulated time.”

The investigation committee had to delay its investigation and postpone its probe report submission as Rapid Action Battalion, leading the investigation, had kept Pradeep in custody for the last 15 days.

Earlier on Tuesday, Pradeep went to jail following his fourth time in remand.

Case Investigation Officer ASP Khairul Islam of RAB 15 said: "We have successfully extracted important information from suspended OC Pradeep in four interrogation sessions spanning a total of 15 days. Now, we must verify this information to continue with the investigation."
