Accused murderer who converted to avoid arrest finally captured
A suspected murderer who went to extraordinary lengths to evade police detection has been picked up in Chittagong after over four years on the run. Al-Amin alias Pradip Chowdhury had constantly shifted his location to evade arrest, even converting from Hinduism to Islam and marrying a Muslim woman in an attempt to conceal his identity. The 32-year-old was finally apprehended in the port city’s Bakalia area on Sunday in connection with the murder of 16-year-old Alauddin, who was stabbed by muggers on March 3, 2014 and succumbed to his injuries at Chittagong Medical College Hospital. The following day, his mother Aleya Begum filed a case with Bakalia police station and Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) Detective Branch (DB). Subsequently, the CMP DB submitted a charge-sheet before a Chittagong court charging two accused but suggested Al-Amin’s name (Pradip Chowdhury) be dropped from the list as he could not be located. On January 18 this year, Chittagong Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Md Shahadat Hossain ordered PBI CMP unit’s Inspector Jahid Hossain to further investigate the case. “Following the court order, the investigation officer arrested Al-Amin from the Bakalia area of Chittagong on Sunday,” PBI CMP unit Inspector Sontos Kumar Chakma said. He added that Al-Amin confessed to changing his location several times, converting to Islam and marrying a Muslim woman, Tania Begum, in his bid to avoid arrest. “Al-Amin had even fled to Dhaka from Chittagong for a long period of time,” he said. On Tuesday, Al Amin was brought before a Chittagong court with a seven-day remand prayer for further interrogation. PBI Inspector Jahid told the Dhaka Tribune: “Al-Amin was very clever in the way he regularly changed locations and concealed his identity. The PBI had to try with our heart and soul to capture him, and used various technologies to do so.”
