DHAKA: After long 30 years of Sagira Morshed murder, Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) has revealed cause of the murder and is set to press charges against four accused in the case.

PBI will submit 309-page charge sheet documents to court on Thursday (January 16), said PBI chief DIG Banaj Kumar Majumder while briefing media at its headquarters in Dhanmondi area of the capital at noon.

The four accused were--Sagira Morshed’s brother-in-law Hasan Ali Chowdhury, his wife Sayedatul Mahmuda alias Shahin, brother-in-law (wife’s brother) Anas Mahmud alias Rezwan and their hired killer Maruf Reza.
