Police also said that they were ‘almost sure’ of the motive behind the killings of the journalist couple.
“We are almost certain about the motive but cannot disclose it for the sake of the investigation,” Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s ADC Mohammad Monirul Islam told the journalists at his office.
Inspector general of police (IGP) Hassan Mahmood Khandker had earlier claimed “remarkable progress” in solving the Sagar-Runi case within a 48-hour deadline set by the home minister on the day of the murder.
When journalists asked Islam about the progress in the probe, Monirul Islam said, “Huge progress have been made but we cannot quantify it now.”
Why did “huge progress” and “almost certain” remarks from authorities change in the course of time?
