The two suspects arrested in a case over the death of Dhaka Tribune’s employee Nazim Uddin in a deadly road accident, have given a confessional statement in court, according to the police.

The accused -- Mohammad Ohidur, a driver of Srabon Paribahan and Mohammad Kamal, a helper of Monzil Paribahan -- gave their confessional statement before the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday. 

Earlier, Jatrabari police station Sub-Inspector Iqbal Hossain, who is the investigation officer in the case, produced the duo before the court after their one-day remand period expired. 

Iqbal appealed to the court to record their confessional statement. 

After recording their statement, the court sent them back to jail.

Nazim, a senior executive of the Dhaka Tribune’s advertisement department, was killed on May 17, when a bus hit his motorcycle and ran over him on the Mayor Mohammad Hanif Flyover in Jatrabari while trying to overtake another bus.   

He was taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead.

Police later impounded the two buses involved in the incident that led to Nazim's death, and detained the duo.
