Tonu’s family members quizzed in Dhaka for probe: Minister

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Wednesday said Criminal Investigation Department (CID) interrogated family members of slain Comilla Victoria College student Sohagi Jahan Tonu at CID headquarters in Dhaka as part of its investigation into the murder case.


The Home Minister came up with the remarks while taking to reporters after attending the 15th founding anniversary programme of Southeast University in Tejgaon in the city, UNB reports.


“CID has been investigating into the sensational murder case to unearth the mystery behind it,” he said adding that the mystery behind the murder will be debunked soon.


CID office of Comilla sent a letter on Monday to Tonu’s family members—father, mother, two brothers and one cousin—to come to CID headquarters in Dhaka.


They came to CID office here on Wednesday where they were quizzed about the murder.


The body of Tonu, also a theatre activist, was found in a bush in Comilla Cantonment area on March 20 last year.


Her murder sparked a huge public outcry and people from home and abroad demanded justice for the college girl.


A case was filed with Comilla Sadar Police Station following the murder. Later, it was transpired to CID.


Doctors at forensic department of Comilla Medical College and Hospital conducted two autopsies on her body but their reports did not mention any clear cause of her death.


In May last year, CID told media that semen of three men were found in DNA test but the officials concerned denied to make any comment over further development.
