Chittagong: Former Superintendent of Police (SP) Babul Akhtar’s wife Mahmuda Khanam Mitu is being framed for murder. The killing mission has been successful with three lakh rupees.
This information came out in the investigation of the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI). After realizing the matter, Babul Akhtar, who is incarcerated, is making inaction to create confusion about Mitu’s murder.
PBI says that Babul planned this brutal murder due to family feud. On September 13, 2084 charge sheet has been submitted to the court accusing 7 people including Babul Akhtar in the murder of Mahmuda Khanam Mitu. Babul Akhtar has been made the main accused in the charge sheet. The case is scheduled to be heard on October 10.
PBI believes that Babul Akhtar tried to divert the main incident by filing a case against PBI chief and six responsible officials to avoid the maximum sentence for killing his wife and to delay the trial.
Chittagong Metropolitan Sessions Judge Dr. The court of Begum Zebunnesha is scheduled to hear the case filed on behalf of Babul Akhtar on September 25.
Meanwhile, the police officials also believe that Babul’s family petitioned the police chief last month, alleging OC Nizam Uddin’s search of Babul Akhtar’s cell in Feni jail, demanding a fair investigation and alleging revenge against the PBI chief.
They say that Babul had no personal dispute with so many responsible officials including the PBI chief. Babul, a former senior police officer, was not exempted due to his direct involvement in the wife’s murder. That is why he is trying to waste time.
According to court sources, evidence of financial transactions has been found in Mitu’s murder. Several people have given confessional statements regarding Babul. Babul has no chance to avoid responsibility. The CID has also submitted a report after examining the handwriting in the gift book seized after the murder and the handwriting of Babul Akhtar. Mitu’s father, former police officer Mosharraf Hossain also claimed that Babul Akter had a relationship with Gayatri Amar Singh, an Indian woman working as a Field Officer (Protection) in UNHCR while working in Cox’s Bazar district. Babul Akhter physically and mentally tortured Mitu for protesting. Mitu informed him (father) about this. This issue has also been mentioned in the PBI report.
Superintendent of Police Naima Sultana in charge of PBI Chittagong Metro Unit said, ‘The investigation report has been prepared with utmost professionalism. Those whose names have come up in the investigation have been charged. I have submitted the charge sheet after getting information about how Babul Akhtar was involved in the murder. PBI has never gone beyond professionalism. After two and a half years of investigation, a charge sheet has been given against the accused in the court on the basis of all kinds of evidence.
Mahanagar PP Veer Muktijoddha Advocate Md. Fakhruddin Chowdhury said that the court will decide on September 25 whether the complaint filed on behalf of Babul Akhtar will be accepted as a case or not.
PBI chief Banaj Kumar Majumder said that the accused can spread various kinds of propaganda to get advantage in the case. Similar efforts are being made regarding Mitu’s murder. In this case, there was no disruption in the investigation process.
Calling Babul Akhtar clever, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said, ‘He is a clever person. We cannot do anything outside of the investigation. We will see that the investigation is done properly. What Babul Akhtar said, whether they are realistic or not can be understood only after investigation. We have confidence in PBI. “All the inquiries made by the PBI are factual and very thorough.”
