SP organised killing his wife: Save police as law enforcers

The alleged involvement of Police Super Babul Akhtar in organising killing of his wife Mahmuda Khanam (Mitu) is a terrible thing to happen. It appears that police high command is dealing with a horrific case as some news report said in total hide and seeks circumstances taking time to break the cruel truth. Openly suspicion is being expressed about high level activities to hide the truth. So sad and unfortunate. 
Babul's detention for about 15 hours at CID headquarters on Friday evening added more weight to the speculation. The SP has done the deed of cruelty most illegally. Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal however said it is not time yet to say whether or not he was involved but the very fact that the investigation now centering around Babul has already damaged the image of police, which is already much tainted by police complicit in crimes. 
The face-to-face interrogation of Babul with two killers was arranged to verifying their claim that they acted for a big brother whom Babul knows. But police are refusing to divulge any information.
It is almost a talk of the town as to why the wife fell to killers' knife. Particularly the reported involvement of the police officer in the killing has put terrible shock waves at all levels including police families where senior officers are obviously having embarrassing time.
What many believe is that over politicization of police who directly work for the ruling party men and rewarded for illegalities including crossfire killings made many officers desperate law breakers being certain of their impunity from punishment. Instead of law enforcers they have by and large become law breakers themselves.
  Babul made a name as counter-terrorism officer and he may have acted with over confidence to cover the killing passing blame on Islamist militants. He found killing is easy. We believe who killed Mitu will be finally established in the court but the very discussion of a high police officer's involvement in killing his own wife is enough to cause image loss for the entire force. If she did wrongs as police officer he should have taken action under the law.
Police should be people's friends if they are true police. But the latest incident shows police have lost the humane face even when it comes to family matters.   
But what appears to be also true is that in most cases police have been forced to take part in the dirty politics and killings to please ruling party men for suppression of opposition.     
We can only urge the high police officials not to allow the police to earn bad name as dangerous criminals. We are a free people and everybody must act in the best interest of the country. Lawless police is dangerous anarchy.
