Police have identified three persons who directly took part in the murder of secularist writer-blogger Avijit Roy.

Deputy Inspector General Monirul Islam, also chief of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit, made the disclosure while talking to reporters at DMP Media Centre on Thursday afternoon.

He said: "Three people who participated in Avijit killing were identified. They are on the run. However, we do not have the information about their whereabouts."

Monirul said police also got documentary evidence about five to six persons who were near the spot at the time of the killing.

Former Buet teacher Avijit Roy, also founder of Mukto-Mona blog, was hacked to death by assailants near TSC when he and his wife Rafida Ahmed Bonya were returning from the book fair on February 26 last year. Bonna sustained severe injuries in the attack.
