Inspector Suranjit Talukder, CID's Sunamganj camp in-charge (investigation), will now conduct the probe, said Officer-in-Charge Abdul Hai Chowdhury of Sunamganj Police Station.

As of now, police have found "contradictions in statements" provided by the two. Considering the case's importance, the police headquarters had made the transfer.
