Police have submitted a charge sheet against two suspects over the murder of Savar Highway Police Assistant Police Commissioner Mizanur Rahman, reports

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Morshed Al Mamun Bhuiyan took cognisance of the charges on Sunday and ordered that warrants be issued against absconding suspect Farooq Howladar.

The other charged in the case is Shah Alam aka Budda, who is currently in prison and has given a deposition under section 164.

Case investigation officer Dhaka Metropolitan Police (West) Inspector Sirajul Islam said he submitted the charge sheet against the two suspects to the court last week.

Two other suspects in the murder – Md Zakir Hossain and Ainal Haque aka Enamul Haque aka Mintu – were killed in an alleged shootout with Detective Branch police, leading to the charges against them being dropped, Islam said.

Another suspect, Kamal, has not been named in the case because police have not confirmed his full name or address.

The state will use the testimony of 21 witnesses to argue their case. The case investigation officer has submitted nine pieces of evidence to the court, including a mobile phone and car keys.
