News Desk :
Police have arrested Shakhawat Ali Nobel, the husband of film actress Raima Islam Shimu and his friend 'Farhad' over her murder.
They were arrested from Dhaka's Kalabagan and police have found some evidence of the killing, said Dhaka District Police Superintendent Maruf Hossain Sarder. Shimu's husband Nobel confessed to murder her. After extensive questioning, both were found to be involved with the murder, said Maruf at a press conference on Tuesday.
"Shimu and Nobel were experiencing marital strife over a range of family issues," he said. "Shimu was killed over these arguments at some point between 7 am and 8 am on Jan 16." Shimu's dismembered body was found in gunny sacks near Hazratpur Bridge in the Aliyapur area of Keraniganj on Monday after locals reported the matter to police. Her elder brother Shahidul Islam identified the body at the Mitford Hospital morgue on Monday.
"Nobel killed my sister ….Nobel is a drug addict. He often argued with my sister," Khokon said at a media briefing on Tuesday.
Shimu left home on Sunday morning saying she was going to a film shoot in Mawa and never came back.
Her husband filed a general diary over the incident.
The 40-year-old actress lived with her husband and two children at Green Road in the capital.
Shimu's film debut came in Kazi Hayat's 'Bartaman' in 1998. She has since worked on as many as 25 films with noted film directors including Delwar Jahan Jhantu, Chashi Nazrul Islam, and Sharifuddin Khan Dipu.
She was an associate member of the Bangladesh Film Artistes Association. In addition to films, she also worked in TV dramas and produced as well.
