February 25, 2023 00:00:00

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Thursday submitted a 'final report' in the sensational Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) central leader Diaz Irfan Chowdhury murder case saying that he died by 'suicide', reports UNB.

The CID in the report also recommended excluding the accused from the murder case.

Jakir Hossain Mahmud, an inspector at the prosecution section of Chattogram district court, said CID's Chattogram Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Abdus Salam Miah submitted the final report on Wednesday.

"The report will be submitted to the court next week," he said.

Earlier, the CID and police submitted two separate reports saying that Diaz, a former assistant secretary of the BCL central committee, died by suicide.

This time again, the CID said they found no evidence of murder.

On November 20, 2016, police recovered the hanging body of Diaz, a former joint secretary of Chittagong University (CU) unit of BCL, from his residence on the north campus of the university.

The first autopsy report prepared by the physicians of Chattogram Medical College Hospital said the former BCL leader committed suicide. The report was given three days after the recovery of the body.

Later, an unnatural death case was filed with Hathazari thana in this connection.

Though police primarily said they found no evidence of murder, the victim's mother Jaheda Amin Chowdhury, also an employee of the CU, filed a murder case accusing 10 people including a CU assistant proctor with a Chattogram court on November 24.

The court asked the law enforcers to reinvestigate the incident after lifting the body from his grave.
