HC wants probe progress report by June 416 May 2014 bdnews24.com
The High Court has asked the committee investigating the Narayanganj multiple murders to report progress by June 4.
The investigation body, formed at the High Court's order, filed its primary report on Wednesday and sought a month's time to finish the probe.
On Thursday, the report was presented to the bench of justices Md Rezaul Haque and Gobinda Chandra Tagore.
Bodies of seven men, including Narayanganj City councillor Nazrul Islam and lawyer Chandan Kumar Sarkar, were found floating on Shitalakhyya River several days after their abduction was reported on Apr 27.
The bench ordered formation of a committee to probe alleged involvement of law enforcers in the crime two days after Nazrul's father-in-law claimed RAB had taken Tk 60 million to carry out the murders.
A week later, another bench ordered arrest of three former RAB officers suspended over the crime after Chandan's son-in-law and two others moved it seeking judicial probe.
It also forwarded the matter to the bench of justices Haque and Tagore.
The state minister for home and police say the arrest of the former RAB officials are "under process".
Headed by public administration's Additional Secretary Md Shahjahan Ali Molla, the seven-member panel is investigating whether any member of the law-enforcing agency was involved in the crime.
It is also see whether there was any negligence on the law enforcers' part in rescuing the abductees.
On Thursday, the body held public hearing for the second day in Narayanganj which will resume on Saturday.
