Anar murder: Many people may be arrested after investigation
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said that many people may be arrested over  the killing of Anwarul Azim Anar, the member of parliament form Jhenaidah-4. 

He was speaking journalists at his ministry office at the secretariat on Monday. Responding to a query, the minister said, "Many suspects may be arrested after completing the investigation of the Anar killing case.''

He kept saying, "We have come very close to the truth. We can reveal a lot to you when the body is identified. I heard the statement of those who committed to murder of Anar." The Indian and Bangladeshi law enforcement agencies have been working jointly to unearth everything of Anar killing, Kamal added.

"DNA tests will ensure whether the recovered objects are Anar's body or not. If the DNA is matched with his daughter's DNA then it will be confirmed that it's Anar's body. Before the test, we cannot be sure that the objects are the parts of his body," he said.

About the extradition treaty, he further said since the incident happened in India, it is their responsibility to take back the main accused from the USA for trial. "As far  as I know, the US has an extradition treaty with India, so in this case, maybe the Indian government will get that benefit. We do not have the treaty with the US. As a friendly country, we believe that India will cooperate in all our activities and continue in the future," he said.

Regarding an on duty police constable shot dead by another police at a sentry post of Palestine Embassy, Kamal said a probe committee was formed to investigate the matter.
