Sagar-Runi murder probe report soon: Home Minister

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said the investigation report of journalist couple Sagar-Runi murder case will be published soon.

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) is probing the murder case and report will be submitted as soon as investigation ends, said the minister.

He made the remarks at a press briefing after an inter-ministerial meeting on law and order at secretariat on Sunday (February 11).

In response to a query, Kamal said RAB is investigating the case as per High Court order. They are even working on DNA test to find the truth. I believe we will be able to shed light on this matter.

However, the minister could not confirm any date for report submission.

In response to a query whether law enforcing agencies failed to uncover truth in this case, the minister said law enforcing agencies have no failure here.

On February 11 in 2012, private TV channel Masranga Television’s journalist Golam Mustafa Sarwar alias Sagar Sarwar and his wife Senior reporter of ATN Bangla Meherun Nahar Runa alias Meherun Runi were murdered at their rented apartment in city’s Paschim Rajabazar area.

On April 18 in 2012, the high Court ordered RAB to investigate and submit report in the case as police and detectives failed to show any progress.
