MP Hostel murder probe
Two gates to be closed May 1Muktadir Rashid
The authorities have decided to permanently close two entrances to the national assembly complex after an unnamed woman was found dead in Block 6 of the MP Hostel on April 22, the officials said.
One of the entrances is near Block 6 of the hostel and the other is close to Asad Gate, the officials said.
‘Of the total five entrances, three will remain open and two will be closed from May 1,’ an official told New Age. The authorities have made the decision a few days ago.
The police till Sunday could neither establish the identity of the young woman whose body was found decomposed in a common toilet adjacent to an attic of Block 6 on April 22 nor identify the killers, the investigator said.
Hostel officials said that the authorities were looking into the matter and investigating how the incident could take place amid tight security.
The Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police on Thursday sent a letter to the speaker seeking permission to visit the offices at the two-storey building in Block 6 for investigation.
The parliament authorities, however, were yet to allow the police to enter the rooms till Sunday evening.
Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police subinspector Md Azim Uddin, also the investigation officer of the case, said he was trying to identify the woman.
At least 10 families, meanwhile, visited the Dhaka Medical College morgue but none could identify her, morgue assistants said on Sunday.
A morgue assistant said the body would be sent to Anjuman-e-Mafidul Islam for burial once the general strike is over.
The morgue assistants said that the woman would be buried in three days.
Morgue sources said the body had marks of stab in the lower abdomen and she might have been strangled.
Her DNA sample was collected for further examination, they said.
