Mitu murder: Babul sent to Feni jail
Former police superintendent Babul Akter, who is under arrest in a case filed over his wife Mitu’s murder, has been sent to Feni district jail today.
Chattogram jail authorities have confirmed the handover to UNB.
Jailer Dewan Tariqul Islam said following an order from the higher authority, Babul was handed over to Feni jail.
“There is no significant reason for his transfer, it’s just where authorities want him to stay,” he said.
On May 17, after a 5-day remand, Babul was produced before the court for giving a confessional statement under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
Later he changed his mind and the court sent him to jail. Since then, Babul was staying in Chattogram jail.
On May 12, PBI detained Babul following an investigation that gave them clear reasons to believe he was involved in his wife’s murder.
In the case statement, his father in law Mosharraf claimed that Babul had his wife killed over extramarital relationship.
On June 5, 2016, unidentified assailants gunned down Babul’s wife Mitu at the port city’s GEC intersection while she was going to drop their son for his school bus.
