Journalist Couple Murder Probe; Cops claim progress

 

Investigators yesterday claimed that they had made headway in the probe into the gruesome murders of the journalist couple Sagar Sarowar and Meherun Runi. They, however, refused to divulge any details before arresting the culprits.

The law enforcers could not arrest anyone in connection with the murder till last night. Earlier on Saturday afternoon, the home minister directed them to put the perpetrators behind bars within 48 hours.

Meanwhile, Nawsher Alam Roman, younger brother of Meherun Runi, filed a murder case with the Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station in the afternoon without mentioning the name of any accused.

Runi’s family members and relatives could not give any hints about who might have been involved in the killings.

Runi, senior reporter of private TV channel ATB Bangla, and her husband Sagar Sarowar, news editor of another private TV station Maasranga, were murdered in the bedroom of their West Rajabazar apartment early Saturday. Their five-year-old son Mahir Sarowar Megh was in the apartment when the murder took place.

Runi’s another brother Nawajesh Alam said two laptops and a cell phone that belonged to Sagar had been missing since the incident.

“We are not sure whether anything else is missing,” he said.

After the incident, police detained two security guards –Palash Rudra Paul and Humayun Kabir — and Abu Taher, caretaker of the building, Shahjalal Rashid Lodge, for interrogation.

Police have been deployed at the house of Runi’s mother where Megh is staying. Law enforcers have also been guarding the building where the murders took place.

Monirul Islam, deputy commissioner of Detective Branch of police (DB-South) said, “We have information, but we cannot disclose anything until we produce the killers before you (the media).”

“We hope to arrest the murderers soon and unveil the mystery behind the killings. We have given it top priority,” said Monirul.

Home Minister Shahara Khatun told journalists at the secretariat yesterday that law enforcers must arrest the murderers within the 48-hour deadline she gave on Saturday.

Shahara said, while visiting the scene of the murder, that she had directed the law enforcers to put the killers behind bars within 48 hours.

Inspector General of Police Hassan Mahmood Khandker has said that personnel from the DB, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Special Branch (SB) and Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) have been working together on it.

In the meantime, journalists formed a human chain in front of the Jatiya Press Club demanding the immediate arrest of and punishment to the murderers. The colleagues of the two slain journalists formed another human chain at the “Saarc Fountain” in the capital.

Journalists and rights activists also formed human chains and brought out silent processions across the country to press home the same demand.
