Police are yet to submit the charge sheet in former SP Babul Akhter's wife Mahmuda Khanam Mitu killing case, even after two years of her gruesome murder.

Md Kamruzzaman, additional deputy commissioner of Detective Branch of Chattogram Metropolitan Police (CMP), also the investigation officer (IO) in the case, said the investigation into the case has almost done and the report will be submitted to the court within a day or two.

On June 5, 2016, unidentified assailants gunned down Mitu at the port city's GEC intersection while she was going to drop her son Mahir Akhter, 7, for a bus of Chittagong Cantonment Public School and College.

Soon after the incident, Babul filed a murder case with Panchlaish Police Station against three unidentified men.

Later, police arrested four people, including Abu Nasur Gunu, Shah Zaman alias Robin, Md Anwar, Md Motaleb Mia alias Wasim from different places in this connection, reports UNB.

Of them, Anwar and Wasim gave confessional statements to the court. Meanwhile, police arrested 'arms supplier' Ehteshamul Haque Bhola and his assistant Md Monir with a pistol.

Police arrested Musa's elder brother Saidul Shikder Shakur and Shahjahan for providing motorbike for using in the killing. The rest are Motaleb Mia Wasim, Anwar Hossain, Ehteshamul Haque alias Bhola, and Md Shahjahan.

Wasim and Anwar made confessional statements before a court, implicating seven people, including Musa, who directly took part in the killing.

Meanwhile, Mitu's father Mosharraf Hossain accused Babul of being involved in the murder. "He (Babul) should be implicated in the murder case... if he's not, we'll go to the court."

CMP Commissioner Iqbal Bahar said they investigated the allegation raised by Mitu's father but did not find Babul's involvement in the murder so far.

However, police said the charge sheet was prepared making Musa an accused.
