Police detained constable Ebadur, district Olama League Secretary Abdur Rakib and Informant Geda Mia for their alleged involvement in the abduction and murder.

Sayeed’s father Abdul Matin also filed a case against six people, including three suspects detained in connection with the murder.
Later on Sunday, the arrested police constable Ebadur Rahman gave confessional statement before a Sylhet court, admitting his involvement in the abduction and killing.

While giving the statement, the constable told the court that nine-year-old Sayeed was abducted for ransom, but he was later killed as he could recognise Ebadur and Geda.
