Confirming the matter, Case Investigation Officer ASP Khairul Islam of RAB 15 said: "We have successfully extracted important information from suspended OC Pradeep in four interrogation sessions spanning a total of 15 days. Now, we must verify this information to continue with the investigation."
Suspended OC Pradeep Kumar Das is the second accused in the murder case and he is yet to record a confessional statement with the court, the IO added.
The same court on Monday put Pradeep on a fresh one day remand.
