Police hunt killers
Police have been conducting drives in different places in search of Dhaka City Corporation (DCC) ward no 41 unit Awami League President Noor Mohammad's son Mintu on suspicion of his involvement in Friday's killing of the unit AL's general secretary Fazlul Huq.
Noor Mohammad's three sons died earlier and Mintu is his only surviving son. Mintu had been absconding in India to escape arrest in different cases against him on charges drug peddling and other criminal activities.
Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station OC Syed Ziauzzzaman told this correspondent that Mintu is the prime suspect in Fazlul Huq murder case. Several groups of law enforcement agencies are trying to nab him.
Police could not glean any information on the second day of the interrogation in five day remand of three arrested including Noor Mohammad's son-in-law Jahangir.
Local AL leaders and common men assume that those who shot and injured ward unit AL president Noor Mohammad on January 8 might have also killed Fazlul Huq. Miscreants shot Noor Mohammad at West Agargaon. He is now undergoing treatment at Chest Diseases Hospital at Mohakhali.
