SP wife murder: Court indicts two in weapons case

A court has indicted two for a weapons case filed over the murder of policeman’s wife, Mahmuda Aktar Mitu, in Chittagong.

Chittagong Metropolitan Sessions judge Md Shahe Noor gave the order on Tuesday morning.

The men facing charges for supplying weapons to Mitu’s killers are Ehteshamul Haque Bhola and Monir Hossain.

The court will start hearing the case from Jan 18, state prosecutor Fakhruddin Chowdhury told the bdnews24.com.

On Jun 5, Mitu, wife of police’s counter-terror officer Babul Aktar, was stabbed and shot in the head by attackers who stopped her while she was taking their son to a school bus at OR Nizam Road.      

Bhola and Monir were arrested in possession of weapons and ammunition on Jun 28, after which the case was filed at Baklia Police Station.

Detectives said two guns recovered from them, a locally-made 32 bore revolver and 7.65 bore pistol, were used in the killing.

Bhola stands accused in cases for both murder and weapons supply, but his ‘assistant’ Monir is accused in the latter only.

Monir gave his testimony, under Section-164, before court on Jul 8.
