SP Babul Akhter taken into police custody



Superintendent of Police Babul Akter have taken into police custody on last night over the murder of his wife Mahmuda Khanam Mitu. He was picked up by police from his in-laws residence in capital’s Khilgaon area.

UNB adds Deputy Commissioner (Motijheel division) Anwar Hossain along with Officer-in-charge of Khilgaon police station Moinul Hossain came to our house around 1:05 am and took Babul with them saying that the IGP wanted to talk with him, said Md Mossharraf Hossain, father-in-law of SP Babul.

We’ve repeatedly tried to contact Babul over mobile phone several times, but haven’t got any response from the other side. Even the OC hasn’t picked up the phone, Mosharraf Hossain said.

The OC Khilgaon or the DC Motijheel did not pick up phone when attempt was made to contact them.

Unidentified miscreants gunned down SP Babul’s wife Mahmuda Khanam at GEC intersection of the port city of Chittagong on June 5 morning while she went there to put her son Mahir Akhter, 7, on a bus of Chittagong Cantonment Public School and College.

A case was filed with Panchlaish police station of Chittagong Metropolitan Police, accusing three unidentified people at night the same day.

After getting promotion as SP, Babul Akhter was attached with the Police headquarters for his posting from CMP several days before his wife was murdered.
