Ctg shrine double murder

No headway in investigation

Staff Reporter, Ctg

Police are yet to make any progress in investigation into the double murder in a shrine in the city though seven days have already elapsed since after the incident. Rahmatullah alias Lengta Fakir, 55, the custodian of the Islamic Sufi shrine (widely known as Lengta Fakirer Mazar) and his disciple Abdul Quader, 30, were killed by slighting throats inside the shrine in Shershah Banglabazar area of the port city in broad daylight on Friday last. Police arrested one Abdul Mannan Mana, 40, suspecting his involvement in the murder incident. Police quizzed him for two days after he was placed on a remand on Sunday. However, they failed to obtain any mentionable information from him.
Police said that the brutal killing might have taken place for either of the three reasons--firstly, land dispute, conflict with the group against the shrine activities and feud over sharing the shrine money. Contacted, Pradip Kumar Das, officer-in-charge of Bayezid Police Station, told The Independent, “Police are yet to make any significant headway in investigation into the case. We aren’t being able to track down the killers or the masterminds behind the killing. Mana didn’t give us any mentionable information.” “We are carrying out investigation giving priority to the three matters, especially land dispute with the so-called saint and conflict with the ‘anti-mazar group’.” On Saturday night, following the double murder, Nurul Islam, younger brother of the dead disciple of the shrine custodian,  filed a murder case with Bayezid police station making a number of unnamed people accused.
When contacted, Devdas Bhattacharya, additional commissioner (crimes and operations) of Chittagong Metropolitan Police told The Independent, “We are yet to unearth the reason behind the murder. We’ve collected a video footage of the murder incident but the face of the killer didn’t appear in it clearly during examination.” “The case will be transferred to the Detective Branch (DB) of police soon for the greater interest of the investigation,” said Devdas. The followers of Rahmatullah cannot yet assume the reason why their ‘saint’ was killed. Md Rahman, a follower of the ‘saint’ said, “We were informed that there was a dispute over land between our ‘Pir’ and a local man.”  The man might have killed ‘the saint’, he suspected. It is learnt, the so-called saint hailed from Fatikchhari Maizbhandar area of Chittagong two decades back.
