A Dhaka court today (May 24) placed three people on eight-day remand each in connection with the murder of Jhenaidah-4 MP Anwarul Azim (Anar) in Kolkata, India.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Dilruba Afroz passed the order after the Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) produced the suspects – Aman Ullah alias Shimul Bhuiyan, a senior leader of the Purba Banglar Communist Party, Shelesti Rahman, and Faysal Ali alias Shaji – before the court in the afternoon.

Earlier, the DB police in a petition sought 10 days for each of the suspects for interrogation under their custody regarding the murder.

Anwarul, a three-time MP and also president of Kaliganj upazila unit Awami League, went to India on May 12 to receive treatment. He went missing on May 13 after going out of the flat he was residing in Kolkata’s Borah Nagar area.
According to the Kolkata police sources, Anwarul was taken to a flat in New Town in Kolkata, where he believed to be strangled to death and his body was cut into pieces and dumped in different areas by the killers.
