The investigation responsibility of the murder case of Comilla Victoria College student Sohagi Jahan Tonu has been transferred to Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI).
Confirming the matter on Tuesday, Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Enamul Haque of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) said the CID has transferred the Tonu murder case to PBI on October 21.
The gang rape and murder of theater activist Tonu inside Comilla Cantonment in March, 2016, led to outrage and mass protests across the country.
Although over four and a half years have passed since the murder case filed by Tonu’s father Yaar Hossain against unknown assailants, law enforcers failed to arrest anyone in this regard.
Tonu’s Father Yaar Hossain said: “The case was in CID’s hand for the past four years. On November 15, (Sunday) some PBI officers from Dhaka visited Comilla Cantonment and informed us that PBI has been investigating the case.”
