Wearing check shirt and blue jeans, he was seen talking over a mobile phone while following Mitu, the CMP boss said.

He might be communicating with his accomplices over mobile phone after the killing, the CMP commissioner said.

“We are yet to affirm whether he is that man. We will verify his identity and CCTV footage more closely,” Iqbal Bahar told reporters at the CMP headquarters.

Meanwhile, driver of a black microbus, who was detained on Wednesday, was freed as police did not find his link with the murder through verification and interrogation, he added.

Earlier on June 5, three assailants reportedly stabbed and shot dead Mitu, 32, who left her OR Nizam Road residence on foot to drop her son at a school bus at GEC intersection in the port city around 6:45am on June 5.

The victim’s husband Babul Akter, who served as additional deputy commissioner of detective branch of Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) earlier, got promotion as superintendent of police recently and was posted at police headquarters in Dhaka, sources said.
