HC gives PBI two months to probe 30-yr-old murder case

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

The High Court (HC) yesterday allowed two more months for the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to complete further investigation into a 30-year-old murder case. A HC bench comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman issued the time after accepting a time prayer sought by the PBI seeking more time to complete further investigation into the case.

The petition, filed by Deputy Attorney General Sarwar Hossain Bappi on behalf of the PBI, called for more time over the matter. Sagira Morshed Salam, 34, was shot dead on the road while going to Viqarunnisa Noon School to pick up her daughter Saharat from the institution on July 25, 1989. On June 26 this year, the HC cleared the way for a lower court to resume trial proceedings in the killing case.

The bench, at the same time, ordered the PBI to complete further probe into the case within two months and directed the trial court to finish trial proceedings in three months. Following the order, the PBI recently arrested four persons in connection with the case and claimed to have found in its probe that Sagira Morshed was killed 30 years ago over a domestic dispute — as opposed to the previous narrative that it was a mugging incident gone wrong.

Law enforcers said brother-in-law of the deceased had “hired one of his patients spending Tk 25,000 to teach her a lesson”. Sagira’s husband Abdus Salam Chowdhury filed a case accusing unnamed people with Ramna Police Station on the same day. But trial of the case remained halted for the last 28 years, following a HC order.
