No specific reason has been found yet behind the killing of Jhenaidah-4 MP Anwarul Azim Anar, said Chief of the Detective Branch of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Mohammad Harun-Or-Rashid on Saturday (25 May).

“However, there might be many reasons including business transactions and establishing supremacy behind the killing of the lawmaker,” he said while speaking at a press briefing held at DB Conference room.

Besides, a three-member team of Detective Branch (DB) police will leave for India by tonight or tomorrow morning, he said.

Apart from Bangladesh police, Kolkata police are also investigating the murder of the MP and they also visited Bangladesh, he said.

“The killers took MP Anar to the flat after abduction and then the killers took one of his phones and went to another place to dodge that he was in another place. Besides, the killers came to the Benapole bordering area with four mobile phone sets after killing him and then called different political rivals to implicate them in the murder,” he said.

Replying to a question why police termed it a murder whereas nobody was found, Harun said there are so many cases where the body has not been found for years.

MP Anar went to Kolkata on May 11 for medical treatment and he remained untraced since May 14.

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on May 22 said the MP was brutally killed at a flat in New Town, near Kolkata.

A case was filed on May 22 following the death of MP Anar.

A Dhaka court on Friday granted an 8-day remand to three accused arrested in connection with the murder.
