Natore Murder

Killers still at large

After five days of the killing of Baraigram upazila chairman Sanaullah Noor Babu, police failed to arrest any prime accused in the case till yesterday evening.
Police said they were making frantic efforts to trace the killers, while wife of slain BNP leader Mohuya Noor Kochi blamed them for sheer negligence.
“Police are not doing enough to arrest the killers of my husband. They can do everything if they have the will,” a disappointed Kochi told The Daily Star at her house yesterday.
She alleged that the killers are in contact with the police and thus have been able to avoid arrest. “All of them are known figures and moved with police in Bonpara after the incident. It is hard to believe that police now cannot find them out,” she regretted.
She accused Bonpara police camp Sub-Inspector (SI) Lutfor Rahman of constantly providing informing to the killers about the raids. She demanded his immediate withdrawal from Bonpara.
Police so far arrested only one attacker, Russell Hossain Rappu, a Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activist of Baraigram upazila unit. He is now in jail.
DB Sub-Inspector Md Abdul Hannan said his teams are making drives in different places of Natore to nab the killers.
“We raided several houses and a godown last night but the culprits managed to flee,” Hannan said yesterday.
Meanwhile, the district administration at a law and order meeting yesterday adopted a condolence motion on the death of Babu, who was also president of Bonpara Poura unit BNP.
Chaired by Additional Deputy Commissioner (general) of Natore, Sultan Abdul Hamid, the meeting decided to carry out an inquiry into the police role when Babu was brutally beaten to death on Friday.
Additional Superintendent of Police in Natore, Nasirul Islam sought cooperation from all and requested to inform police about the hideouts of the killers.
More than 100 Awami League, Jubo League and Chhatra League activists attacked a BNP procession with lethal weapons at Bonpara bazar on Friday, killing Babu and badly injuring 20 others, including four journalists.
The law enforcers remained unmoved at the site during the attack. They did not also take any step to prevent the attack, although the ruling party men gathered there in the morning and were prepared to attack the procession, witnesses alleged.
Mahua Noor Kochi filed a murder case with Baraigram Police Station accusing 27 persons by name and some 20 unnamed.
