Court gives police six days to interrogate the former gardener of the UNO office

Police have made another arrest in connection with the attack on Dinajpur’s Ghoraghat upazila UNO Wahida Khanam and her father Omar Ali Sheikh.

The arrestee, 43-year-old Robiul Islam, worked as a gardener at the UNO’s office before being suspended on theft allegations. He is the resident of Bijora union under Birol upazila of Dinajpur.

Robiul has primarily confessed to his involvement in the attack, said Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Devdas Battachariya of the police’s Rangpur range.

"We have recovered some evidence based on his confession. Besides, we have found similarity between his confession and the footage of CCTV cameras”, DIG Battachariya told a media call on Saturday at the office of Dinajpur’s Superintendent of Police.

Robiul was detained on Friday evening, said Imam Zafar, officer-in-charge of Detective Branch (DB) of Dinajpur police and the investigating officer (IO) of the case.

Besides, the prime suspect Asadul Haque was sent to jail after his 7-day remand ended, said Court Inspector Israil Hossain on Saturday.

On September 3, Wahida's brother-in-law filed a case with Ghoraghat police station against some unidentified miscreants in connection with the attack.
