Mintu involved in financial transaction to murder MP Anar: DB

Detective Branch (DB) of police said Jhenaidah district Awami League general secretary Saidul Karim Mintu was involved in the financial transaction to murder MP Anwarul Azim Anar.

Earlier, Detective Branch (DB) of Police Assistant Commissioner Mahfuzur Rahman, also the investigation officer of the case, produced the accused in the court with ten-day remand prayer on Thursday (June 13).

In the remand prayer, the investigation officer of the case, mentioned Mintu’s involvement in the MP Anar murder.

It was mentioned in the remand prayer that Shimul Bhuiya alias Amanullah Sayeed, one of the prime suspects in the MP Anar murder, gave a confessional statement in court where he cited Saidul Karim Mintu’s involvement in the murder.

MP Anar's daughter Mumtarin Ferdous filed the murder case at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station on the evening of May 12.

Shimul Bhuiya alias Amanullah Sayeed, Tanveer Bhuiya and Sylista Rahman were arrested in this case. After remand, they gave a confessional statement in court and are currently in jail.

Besides, on June 9, Jhenaidah District Awami League Relief and Social Welfare Secretary Kazi Kamal Ahmed Babu was remanded by the court for 7 days.

MP Anar crossed the Darshana-Gede border into India for treatment on May 12. Anar went to his Indian friend Gopal Biswas’s home in North 24 Parganas district, West Bengal.

The following day, he went out at noon to see a doctor and was supposed to return in the evening. However, he apparently went to Delhi instead and sent a WhatsApp message to Biswas, saying he would call if necessary.

Since then, he could not be reached by phone.

On May 18, Gopal Biswas filed a GD regarding Anar's disappearance at Barahnagar police station. But this member of parliament who has served three times in a row has not been found.

On May 22, news spread that Anar was murdered in flat number BU 56 of a residential building called Sanjiva Gardens in the New Town area near Kolkata. Traces of blood were found inside the house. But the body was not found there.
