A Bangladesh police team, which arrived in Kolkata on Sunday, said they will seek cooperation from West Bengal police and conduct a thorough investigation into the murder of their MP Anwarul Azim Anar.

The chief of the Bangladesh Detective Department said the mastermind of this murder, the beneficiary and those who executed the plans, all are Bangladeshi. The police team expressed its desire to interrogate the arrested suspects and visit Baranagar, where Anar resided, along with speaking to the MP’s friend and the landlord of the house where he stayed.

Talking to reporters, the Bangladeshi detective Harun-or-Rashid said the main conspirator Akhtaruzzaman may have escaped from Kathmandu to the US via Dubai. “You all know one of our popular parliamentarians Anwarul Azim Anar was heinously murdered and his body was cut into pieces. The mastermind of this murder, the beneficiary and those who executed the plans, all are Bangladeshi. The murder plot was planned in Bangladesh,” the Bangladesh detective said.

“Now our main work is to take forward the investigation. We are here in India to visit the place where the crime was committed. We will check the CCTV footage. Kolkata Police and Bangladesh Police have shared various information between them,” he added.  “The main conspirator Akhtaruzzaman may have escaped from Kathmandu to the US via Dubai. We are trying to trace him through Interpol. We will go to the CID office. We will have a meeting with the officers of CID. We will try to interrogate the arrested accused so that we can get more information.”

Speaking to PTI anonymously, a senior state CID officer affirmed their readiness to assist the Bangladesh detectives in every possible way. He said all evidence gathered by the state CID regarding the case would be shared with them. The search for the missing MP began when Gopal Biswas, a resident of Baranagar and an acquaintance of Anar, lodged a complaint with local police on May 18, stating that Anar, who arrived in Kolkata on May 12 for medical treatment, had gone missing.

According to Biswas, Anar left his residence in Baranagar for a doctor’s appointment on May 13, assuring that he would return home for dinner. However, he became unreachable on May 17, prompting Biswas to file a missing complaint the following day. According to Kolkata Police, circumstantial evidence indicated that the MP was first strangled and killed after which his body was chopped into pieces and dumped in different areas. Traces of his body or body parts are yet to be found.
