“We primarily suspect that militants might have been involved in the killing as Babul Akter (victim’s husband) conducted drives against them in the past,” said Masood-ul-Hasan, additional commissioner of Chittagong Metropolitan Police.
Mahmuda Khanam Mitu, 32, wife of Babul, superintendent of police of Dhaka police headquarters, was stabbed and shot dead by unidentified assailants at the city’s GEC intersection around 6:45am.
The victim’s husband fearlessly conducted operations against banned militant outfit Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), the police official told reporters at Chittagong Medical College Hospital where Mitu’s body has been kept.

After visiting the hospital, the port city Mayor AJM Nasir Uddin told reporters that “militants” through killing a police official’s wife have challenged the people and the state.
That’s why the people and the authorities have to fight militancy together, he said.
The victim was innocent and such a killing is “unacceptable”, the mayor said.
Babul, top officials of police and Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) were present there.
