Dhaka, Apr 24 (bdnews24.com)– Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Bikash Kumar Saha ordered exhuming the bodies of journalist couple Sagar Sarowar and Meherun Runi on Tuesday, 73 days after their brutal murder.
The order came upon on a petition by Rapid Action Battalion’s senior assistant superintendent of police Jafar Ullah, also the investigation officer, to conduct further forensic tests.
The court also ordered the Dhaka’s deputy commissioner to assign an executive magistrate to oversee the digging-up work.
The couple was killed at their rented apartment in Dhaka’s West Rajarbazar area on Feb 11. A case has been filed with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station. The law enforcers, however, failed to make any visible headway in the investigation into grisly killing.
The case has been shifted to RAB by the High Court after Detective Branch officials admitted that they have failed to make any progress in the investigation.
