A three-member team of the Detective Branch of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) led by its additional commissioner Harunor Rashid reached India on Sunday to investigate the murder of lawmaker Anwarul Azim Anar in Kolkata on May 13.

The team flew to Kolkata in the morning, Faruk Hossain, deputy commissioner (media wing) of DMP told the media.

The other two members are Deputy Commissioner of Wari Division (detective) Abdul Ahad and its Additional Deputy Commissioner Shahidur Rahman.

Earlier, a four-member team of West Bengal CID arrived in Bangladesh to investigate the killing and interrogated three accused arrested here.

The DB team went to India after the West Bengal CID team completed their part of the investigation.

The DB officials said they would interrogate the accused arrested by their Indian counterpart and visit the place of the murder to collect evidence.

They will also share their findings with the officials concerned in Kolkata.

The Jhenaidah-4 MP crossed the Darshana-Gede border into India for treatment on May 12. He stayed at his friend Gopal Biswas’s home in North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal.

The following day, he left to see a doctor at noon and was expected to return in the evening. However, a WhatsApp message from his phone to Biswas stated that he went to Delhi instead and would call if necessary.

Since then, he could not be reached by phone. Eventually, the government confirmed his death on May 22, citing Indian police.
