Dhaka, June 26: Superintendent of Police Babul Akter, whose wife was killed by assailants in Chittagong on June 5, was quizzed by maintaining the law, Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia said on Sunday.
SP Babul Akter is the plaintiff of the murder case and it is a normal process that an investigation officer interrogates a complainant, the DMP commissioner told journalists.
The SP was asked to come to the Detective Branch office for questioning but he wanted DB to send him a car to reach the office, the DMP chief said at a programme organised at Dholaipar High School field for distribution of Eid clothes among the poor.
The DMP chief also added: “We send the vehicle as per his consent.”
Babul Akter was quizzed by a four-member team of Chittagong police at the DB office in the capital’s Minto Road on Saturday.
Investigators kept Babul Akter in their custody for about 15 hours from early hours of yesterday and interrogated him as the five arrested suspects allegedly divulged his link with the killing, sources in Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) said.
After his release from the police custody around 4:30pm, Babul told media over phone that investigators questioned him about the murder case, as he was the plaintiff of the case.
On the morning of June 5, three assailants killed Mahmuda Khanam Mitu near her Nizam Road house in the port city when she was taking her son to put him on a school bus.
