Police have arrested Khairul Islam Kalu, a chargesheeted accused in former police super Babul Akter’s wife Mahmuda Akter Mitu murder case. 

Banaj Kumar Majumder, Chief of Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI), confirmed the matter to Jago News on Saturday.  

He said Kalu was arrested from Salimpur area in Chattogram’s Sitakunda and handed over to the police station on Friday night.

Mitu was shot dead near GEC Intersection in Chattogram on June 5, 2016 as she was taking her son to school. 

Babul Akter, a police super at the time, filed a case in 2016 after his wife Mitu was murdered in a daylight. Later Babul himself became the key suspect in the case following the PBI investigation.

Mitu’s father filed another case after the PBI submitted its final investigation report. But the court dismissed that case and revived the case filed by Babul himself.

PBI submitted charge sheet against seven people including Babul on September 13 last year while the court accepted the charge sheet on October 10.
