Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said Criminal Investigation Department (CID) interrogated family members of slain Comilla Victoria College student Sohagi Jahan Tonu at CID headquarters in Dhaka as part of the investigation into the murder case.
The minister said this on Wednesday while taking to reporters after attending the 15th founding anniversary programme of Southeast University in Tejgaon in Dhaka.
“CID has been investigating into the sensational murder that occurred inside Comilla Cantonment to unearth the mystery behind it,” minister Asaduzzaman said adding that the mystery behind the murder will be solved soon.
Comilla CID office sent a letter on Monday to Tonu’s family members – father, mother, two brothers and one cousin—to come to CID headquarters in Dhaka.
They came to CID office on Wednesday where they were quizzed about the murder.
The body of Tonu, a theatre activist and a student at Victoria College, was found in a bush in Comilla Cantonment area on March 20 last year.
The murder had sparked a huge outcry and people from all walks of life in home and abroad had demanded justice.
A case was filed with Comilla Sadar Police Station following the murder. Later, it was handed over to the CID.
Doctors at forensic department of Comilla Medical College and Hospital conducted two autopsies on her body but their reports did not mention any clear cause of her death.
In May last year, CID told media that semen of three men were found in DNA test but the officials concerned denied to make any comment over further development.
