Salman Shah’s death case being investigated by Police Bureau of Investigation
The Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) is examining an online video posted by a fugitive suspect in the 1996 murder of the actor Salman Shah, nine months after the agency was ordered to reopen the case. In her video posted on August 6 which soon went viral, Ruby Sultana claims Salma was “murdered” by her husband Jan Lin Chan, her brother Rumi, and Salman’s own wife, Samira Huq, among others. This however contradicts the official verdict of suicide which was recorded in the original investigation reports conducted by the DB, CID, and a judicial magistrate. “We are trying to verify the authenticity of the video and the woman’s identity before we proceed to take that into evidence,” PBI Chief Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Banaz Kumar Majumder told Dhaka Tribune. “Teams from the PBI are currently trying to gather as much information as possible about the people mentioned in the video and their current locations.” On December 6, 2016, a Dhaka court directed the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to conduct a further probe in the case after hearing a no-confidence petition filed by Salman’s mother, Nilufar Chowdhury. Ruby Sultana is one of the 11 people accused by Salman Shah’s mother.

DIG Banaz said that they were very serious about investing the case and that the video was “a very good clue for them”. The PBI said they have information that Ruby moved to the USA several years ago. According to the case documents, at the time of Shah’s death Ruby lived in another apartment in the same building in Eskaton, and was the actor’s personal stylist. She was on the scene on September 6, 1996 when the police recovered his body. Salman’s father, Kamaruddin Chowdhury, filed an unnatural death case with Ramna police station. Later, Kamaruddin applied to turn it into a murder case. After completing the investigation on November 3, 1997, CID submitted a final report before the court stating that Salman had committed suicide. Later, Salman’s father filed a revision case against the report. Following the case on May 19, 2003, a Dhaka court was directed to conduct a judicial probe into the case. On July 9, 2014, the court submitted the probe report where the magistrate said he found no evidence of the actor being killed and restated the verdict that Salman Shah had committed suicide. On February 10, 2015, a Dhaka court ordered RAB to investigate the case after hearing on a no-confidence petition filed by Salman’s mother which challenged the earlier judicial probe that did not find any evidence of murder. Another Dhaka court then directed the PBI to conduct a further probe in the case on December 6, 2016.
