Babul submits no-confidence petition

CHATTOGRAM:  Former Superintendent of Police (SP) Babul Akter submitted a no-confidence petition against the probe report made by police on the much-talked-about murder case filed by him in connection with killing of his wife Mahmuda Akhter Mitu.  

He submitted the petition to the court of Chattogram Metropolitan Magistrate Mehnaj Rahman on Thursday, said his lawyer Sheikh Iftekhar Saimul Chowdhury.

The court accepted the appeal and set October 27 for hearing on it in presence of the plaintiff, he said.

The lawyer also said 51 witnesses made statements under section 161 in the case filed by Babul Akter. None of them claimed that Babul was involved in the killing.

 “Babul as a police officer worked against gold smugglers and militants. We believe a vested quarter along with the criminals’ syndicate hatched conspiracy against Babul,” he said.     

Earlier, members of Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) arrested Babul in the murder case filed by the Mtiu’s father Mosharraf Hossain on May 12 this year following the probe report submitted in the case filed by him.

Mentionable, miscreants chopped and shot Mitu to death while she was escorting her son to his school bus at GEC intersection, near her residence at OR Nizam Road, at around 6:30am on June 5 in 2016.
