A case has been filed against Babul Akhter, husband of Mahmuda Akhter Mitu and a former SP, and made him the prime accused in the murder case of Mitu.
Mitu’s father Mosharraf Hossain filed the case with the Panchlaish police station in Chattogram on Wednesday afternoon. Apart from Babul Akhter, seven others were also made accused in the case.
Earlier, Babul Akter went to the PBI’s Chattogram metropolitan office on Tuesday afternoon. He was interrogated by senior PBI officials, including Inspector Santosh Kumar Chakma, the investigating officer in the case.
Mahmuda Khanam Mitu, wife of the then Superintendent of Police Babul Akter, was brutally shot and stabbed on the way to pick up her son from the school bus at OR Nizam Road near GEC junction in the city on June 5, 2016. That time, Babul Akhter filed a murder case with the Panchlaish police station.
The case was being investigated by the city DB police. Later, in January last year, the PBI was given the task of investigating the case “by court order”.
