Mitu murder: Babul Akter's handwriting test report submitted
Own Correspondent, Dhaka, April 23: A book was seized in a case filed in connection with the murder of Mahmuda Khanam, wife of former Superintendent of Police Babul Akter. It is believed that Babul Akhtar received the book as a gift from a woman. The book also had handwritings on a few pages. The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the police submitted the report on Thursday after examining the handwriting in the gifted book and the handwriting of Babul Akter.
The report has been submitted to the investigating agency PBI, after examining the writings in that book and the handwriting of Babul Akter.
PBI is investigating Mitu's murder case. Naima Sultana, superintendent of police at PBI's Chittagong metro, told the Dhaka Post on Friday (April 22) that the investigating officer in the case had applied to the court on March 14 for a handwriting test in the Mahmuda murder case. In view of this, the court directed the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the police to conduct an investigation in this regard. The report was submitted by CID on Thursday.
However, the PBI SP did not give details of what is in the report. When asked whether the text of the book and the handwriting of Babul Akter matched, she said, "Nothing can be said about this now. I can only say that I have received the report. The investigation of the case is going on. The information and documents of the report will be submitted at the time of filing the complaint in the court."
Investigating officer of the case PBI Chittagong Metro Inspector Abu Jafar Mohammad Omar Farooq could not be reached over phone.
Earlier, the court had sought permission to collect and examine Babul Akter's handwriting samples, saying a book was among the items seized as evidence in the Mahmuda murder case. Babul Akter received the book as a gift from a woman.
According to PBI sources, the handwriting on the third page of the book recovered as evidence of the case. And on the last page is another handwriting. Presumably, the writing on the third page is of a woman gifted a book, and the writing on the last page is by Babul Akter.
