After the murder of Shamim, security guard of Elite Force Security Guard Agency, his father Nazrul Islam filed a case with Vatara Police Station on that date.

The plaintiff accused were Mohammad Faruk, Shahin Alam, Abdur Rahim and Nazrul Islam Razib as they had a conflict with Shamim.

The case was first investigated by local and detective police. On April 3, the case was handed over to PBI Dhaka Metro South.  

Sub-Inspector Pulak Sarkar under the supervision of Superintendent of Police (SP) at Dhaka Metro South Md Shahadat Hossain began investigation and nabbed Kafil from his native village at Phulbari in Kurigram on May 15.

Sabina’s husband Abdul Malek visited Kafil’s village house in Kurigram while Kafil visited Shahana’s in Gaibandha.
