Grisly butcher arrested in Kolkata

The West Bengal CID arrested one person from the state’s Bongaon area in North 24 Parganas district for his alleged involvement in the “murder” of Bangladesh MP Anwarul Azim Anar, an officer said on Friday. The man, a butcher by profession, has admitted during interrogation that he had helped the other accused in chopping the victim’s body before disposing the parts, the officer claimed.

Bengal Police confirmed the murder the Anar, an Awami League MP from Jhenaidah-4 segment in Bangladesh, on Wednesday after the victim went missing from Kolkata on May 13. State CID sleuths on Friday took the arrested person to the Bhangar area where the chopped body parts were put in plastic bags and scattered across different places, he said.

“The accused is a Bangladeshi citizen and a butcher by profession. He had entered India illegally and was staying in Mumbai hiding his true identity. He was called to Kolkata a couple of months back as a part of the plan to kill Anar. He has admitted that he was an accomplice to the four men who murdered the politician inside the flat and helped them in skinning and chopping the body,” the police officer told PTI.

The arrested accused would be produced at a court in Barasat later Friday, he said, adding that a team of CID officers were in the process of searching for the victim’s body parts at the Krishnamati village in Bhangar where the butcher had led them.
