Police solved the case after arresting three people, included assistant engineer (Zone-7) of GCC Anisur Rahman Selim, 41, hired killer Shahin and microbus driver Habib, after analysing video footages and use of technology.
Dhaka Metropolitan Police assistant commissioner (Uttara Zone) Sachin Moulik said they interrogated engineer Selim and two engineers of RFL company — Sufian and Rashed — extensively soon after the victim’s wife Khodeza Akhter filed the murder case with Turag police station on 12 May.
“We were able to identify Selim after scrutinising video footages near the road adjacent to Delwar’s Mirpur residence and CCTV footages of Selim’s Kafrul residence,” he said.
A team of Turag police station arrested Selim from Kafrul on 20 May. During primary interrogation, he revealed that he was involved in the killing and hired killer Shahin and driver Habib assisted him in the murder, he said.
Based on his statement, police arrested Shahin from Bauniabadh area of Pallabi and Habib from Bhatara areas in the capital on Wednesday night, AC Sachin Moulik said.
Police also recovered the microbus used in the killing from Gualanda in Faridpur and the mobile of Delwar from the lake under Bridge no-3 of Diabari, which falls under Turag police station, on Thursday with the help of divers of Fire Service and Civil Defence.
Police produced Selim, Shahin and Habib before Dhaka chief metropolitan magistrate’s court on Thursday where Shahin and Habib gave confessional statements. The court allowed police to interrogate Selim five days in custody.
