Suspect still untraced despite his phone being switched on

Update : 03 Apr 2015, 09:42 PM

One of the mobile phone connections used by the prime suspect in the killing of college teacher Krishna Kaberi Biswas – was found turned on yesterday, even though the police had earlier claimed that all phones used by the suspect and his family were switched off.

However, despite repeated attempts by the Dhaka Tribune yesterday evening, KM Jahirul Islam, the suspected murderer, did not pick up the phone that he reportedly used for official purposes.

The personal contact number used by Jahirul, on the other hand, was found switched off.

On Wednesday, investigation officer of the case Mahbubur Rahman said they could not trace Jahirul as he and his family members had switched off their phones.

When contacted yesterday, Officer-in-Charge of Mohammadpur police station Mohammad Azizul Haque said no progress has been made in locating the suspect.

Asked about tracing the mobile phone’s location, the OC refused to comment on the issue as investigation was ongoing.

Last Monday evening, the killer entered the flat of BRTA Deputy Director Sitangshu Shekhar Biswas and attacked him and his family. Kaberi, 36, was initially hacked with a kitchen sickle and later set on fire; she died the following day. The couple’s two daughters were also injured in the attack.

Meanwhile, Himangshu Biswas, Sitangshu’s elder brother, said the medical conditions of the victims were much better than before.

Family members of Sitangshu told the Dhaka Tribune that the BRTA official and his two daughters had not yet been informed of Kaberi’s death, but will be informed about it on Friday night. The family said they wanted to arrange Kaberi’s funeral at Sitangshu’s ancestral crematory in Rajbari’s Baliakandi on Saturday.

Sitangshu’s brother Sudhangshu Shekhar Biswas filed a murder case with Mohammadpur police on Tuesday, naming Jahirul as the main accused. Investigators are suspecting that share market investment might be behind Monday’s attack.
