Several units of law enforcement agencies and intelligence agencies are working to trace the killers of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) student Fardin Nur Parash.

They are investigating why Fardin went there and with whom. The last location of the student was at Keraniganj.

A number of people have already been interrogated by the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) and the Detective Branch (DB).

Other people are suspected of being detained and questioned, according to police sources.

The sources said that the law enforcers would reach a conclusion shortly over the incident.

RAB-11 brought Saiful Islam Babu, cousin of Fardin, to its custody on Tuesday and interrogated him, said sources.

When contacted, Lt Col Tanvir Mahmud Pasha, Commanding Officer of RAB-11, told the Daily Sun that they obtained information from a number of family members and relatives of the victim.

 "But we did not bring anybody into suspicion," he said. The officer said that they were trying to make headway in the incident.

After the recovery of the body, DB Motijheel Division brought Amat Ullah Bushra, the girlfriend of the victim, and Shirza Sangshaptaq, a friend of the deceased, to their custody and interrogated them.

When contacted, Razib Al Masud, deputy commissioner (DB Motijheel) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, told the Daily Sun that they were yet to make progress in the matter.        

On Monday afternoon, the body of Fardin was recovered from the Sitalakkhya River behind Laxmi Narayn Cotton Mills in Siddhirganj of Narayanganj after he went missing from the capital on November 4.

After conducting an autopsy on his body, Narayanganj General Hospital’s doctor Sheikh Farhad said that Fardin, 24, was murdered as his body bore several injury marks.

After the body was recovered, the family members of the deceased were emotionally broken, and they had yet to go to any police station to file a report.

Inspector (Investigation) of Siddhirganj Police Station Hafizur Rahman Manik told the Daily Sun that he personally contacted the father of the victim several times to come to their police station and file a case, but he did not come. As it is a sensitive incident, a case should be filed quickly to dig out the mystery.

Contacted, Kazi Nur Uddin Rana, father of the victim, said they would file a case with Rampura Police Station as they had lodged a general diary with it after their son went missing.

Fardin hailing from Nayamati at Kutubpur in Deulpara of Narayanganj city lived in Konapara in Shantibagh of Demra.  He was a third-year student of Civil Engineering Department at Buet.

He had an appointment to join a debating competition in Madrid in Spain next month.
