Doctor turned ‘contract killer’

Staff Reporter

The Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police has unearthed the identity of a doctor who used to work as a professional contract killer instead of his medical profession. Jahidul Alam Kadir completed his MBBS from Mymensingh Medical College. The doctor also holds diplomas from Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Medical University. Jahidul has built an armoury in his house and gathered foreign firearms, Monirul Islam, chief of the CTTC, said this at a press conference at the DMP Media Centre yesterday (Thursday).

He said Zahidul was contracted by a person in London to kill a member of Parliament in the greater Sylhet region. Jahidul did not have any government or permanent job after passing out from Mymensingh Medical College in 2002. He used to work in different hospitals and clinics. He used to buy illegally licensed foreign weapons from a variety of sources and sold them at a higher price.

The doctor is especially skilled in the construction and repair of various types of firearms. Apart from using various parts, he is very skilled in changing the size and shape and increasing the performance of firearms.

He was arrested last month before being signed in at several places as a professional killer. Jahidul had connections with terrorists and professional killers in different parts of the country. The police seized more weapons on information gathered during Jahidul’s initial interrogation. In all, 15 firearms and 1,622 rounds of bullet were seized. The weapons include three .22 bore rifles, one .303 rifle, four .32 bore revolvers, one .22 revolver, five 7.65 pistols and one .25 pistol.  However, it is to be noted that on May 15 Jahidul was arrested from the Jatrabari area of the capital along with two pistols and eight rounds of bullet.

On June 3, on the basis of information gathered during interrogation, Jahidul’s wife, Masuma Akhter, was arrested with one foreign pistol and four rounds of bullet from the Gabtali area.  After interrogation of Masuma, Jahidul was remanded for interrogation. After the confession made by Zahidul, 12 firearms and 1,610 rounds of bullet were seized from his flat in the Bagmara area of Mymensingh on June 4. The firearms and bullets were hidden behind a specially built steel cabin. Monirul Islam also said that Jahidul had collected some arms from legitimate arms vendors. “The police are investigating the matter. The legal arms dealers who sold them illegally have also been brought under the law,” he added.
