07 March 2015, Nirapad News: Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Asaduzzaman Miah on Saturday said the real culprits behind the murder of blogger Avijit Roy will be arrested soon after examining the relevant footage and clues which have been collected.

“The progress of the probe is so far satisfactory, but we aren’t disclosing our findings for the sake of investigation,” he told a press briefing at the DMP Headquarters.

“The Detective Branch of Police will conduct investigation into the case while the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) team will provide technical support only,” the DMP Commissioner added.

“As Avijit was an American citizen, the FBI showed interest in assisting the investigation… we’ve some limitations of using modern technology in the investigation work. We’ll take their technical assistance for this reason,” he added.

Earlier a four-member team of US Bureau of Federal Investigation (FBI) arrived here on Wednesday to assist the Bangladeshi law enforcement agencies to investigate the sensational murder case.

The team also visited the murder site on Friday and took photographs there. They also visited Suhrawardy Udyan and Bangla Academy areas where the Ekushey Book Fair was arranged.
