Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said that investigation will reveal if Jhenaidah-4 constituency MP Anwarul Azim Anar was involved in any wrongdoing.

“I cannot say anything before the completion of investigation. There is no room for criminals in the Awami League,” Quader said.

He made these remarks during an introductory meeting with the newly formed Youth and Sports Sub-committee members at the Dhaka district Awami League office on Thursday (May 23).

Anwarul Azim Anar, who was nominated for the third time due to his popularity, is under scrutiny following his death, with Indian media alleging his involvement in smuggling activities.

“Sheikh Hasina does not spare any wrongdoer, even if they are from the party. Her policy regarding crime is zero tolerance,” Quader emphasized.

“Why the smuggling allegation did not come up in any investigative report by journalists in our country before his death,” Quader also questioned.

MP Anwarul Azim, who is a resident of the Nischintapur village in Kaliganj upazila of Jhenaidah, went to West Bengal of India on May 12. He went out to see a physician the next day and did not return. Later, his severed body was recovered from a flat in New Town area of Kolkata on Wednesday (May 22).

Azim was the AL lawmaker from the Jhenaidah-4 constituency.
