Few days ago the high court expressed its dissatisfaction over the investigation on Sagar-Runi’s murder conducted by the police. Home minister promised to find out the culprits within 48 hours. But more than two months have passed noting fruitful was done by the police. Apparently most experienced, well equipped and trained investigating section of police failed. Then the high court has ordered to shift the case to the Rapid Action Battalion.
The RAB investigating officer submitted a petition to the court seeking permission to exhume Sagar-Runi’s bodies for another autopsy. According to RAB there was no viscera report in the first postmortem report. They need a viscera report to find out whether drugs were used to make them unconscious. The court granted the permission and their body will be exhumed in presence of an executive magistrate. Sagor was news editor of Maasranga TV and Runi was senior reporter of another private TV ATN Bangla. This brutal killing infuriated the journalist community of the country.
