Another murderer of MP Anwarul arrested from Nepal


The criminal investigation department (CID) of the West Bengal Police has arrested another accused in the murder case of parliamentarian Anwarul Azim, said Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Habibur Rahman.

While speaking to the media at the DMP media centre in Dhaka, Commissioner Habibur Rahman said, "The Kolkata CID is investigating the murder case. They have two accused in their custody. They brought one from Nepal, while they arrested the other earlier."

The DMP commissioner did not reveal the new arrestee's identity, but investigation-related sources identified him as Siyam.

Where is the trial for the Anwarul murder case scheduled to be held? Habibur Rahman replied, stating that typically, a crime is tried at the location where it occurred.

However, Bangladeshi law recommends that individuals involved in overseas crimes be brought back to their home country to stand trial.

"We are conducting an investigation, and they are also doing so. At a certain stage, we would decide where the trial should occur," he added.

A total of five people – three in Bangladesh and two in Kolkata and Nepal have so far been arrested over the brutal murder of Jhenaidah-4 constituency MP Anwarul Azim.

The arrestees in Bangladesh are Amanulla Sayeed alias Shimul Bhuiyan alias Shihab alias Fazal Muhammad Bhuiyan, Tanvir Bhuiyan, and Sheelasti Rahman. Jihad Hawladar and Siyam Hossain were arrested in Kolkata and Nepal.

A police team from Dhaka went to Nepal on Saturday to bring Siyam. They returned home on Monday but have yet to reveal any progress.

Anwarul Azim had gone to Kolkata on 12 May and was murdered the next day in a flat at Sanjiva Gardens in New Town, Kolkata.

After examining CCTV camera footage of the flat and other details, the Kolkata police informed their Bangladesh counterpart of the matter.

Later, the DMP's detective branch arrested three suspected criminals from Dhaka.

During investigations, the police learned the details about Anwarul Azim's killing and disposal of his body.

Officials involved in the inquiry said after he was killed, Anwarul's body was chopped into pieces and removed in bags. Some parts were thrown into a canal in Kolkata.
