Babul Akhter came to Dhaka at that time to join the police headquarters after being promoted as Superintendent of Police (SP). After the death of his wife, he became a plaintiff and filed a case against the unnamed accused at Panchlaish police station. He mentioned in the statement that his wife may have been killed as she was involved in anti-militancy operations. However, in less than three weeks, the case turned around.
According to the PBI, the investigation into the interrogation of the children of the Babul-Mahmuda couple has stopped. Babul’s family is disobeying the court’s order, according to the specialized police investigation. Babul’s family lawyer, on the other hand, alleged that the PBI did not comply with the court order.
On April 26, the investigating officer of the case, PBI Chittagong Inspector Abu Jafar Muhammad Omar Farooq, wrote a letter to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court in Chittagong. In the letter, Babul-Mahmuda gave details of what happened when the children of the couple were brought before the investigating officer as per the court order. Omar Farooq said that the testimony of the son of Babul-Mahmuda couple is required as an eyewitness. The little girl is also important as a witness.
The two sons and daughters are now with grandfather Abdul Wadud Mia and uncle Habibur Rahman in Magura.
In Chittagong, the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate directed the children to be produced before the investigating officer within two weeks. However, Habibur Rahman appealed to the Metropolitan Sessions Judge’s Court to reconsider the order. The court rejected the application on March 16 and allowed the interrogation in accordance with the Children’s Act, 2013. Then Habibur Rahman filed another application in the High Court.
