Report submission on Salman Shah’s death deferred


A Dhaka court on Sunday deferred the submission of report on further inquiry into the death of actor Salman Shah to June 10.
Magistrate Wayej Kuruni Khan Chowdhury of the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Court of Dhaka passed the order as the Rapid Action Battalion did not submit the probe report on Sunday, as directed on February 10 to submit the report.
Actor Chowdhury Mohammad Shahriar Emon alias Salman Shah died on September 6, 1996, when his father Kamruddin Ahmad Chowdhury lodged a case of unnatural death. Later, on July 24, 1997, he appealed to the court to transform the case into a murder case.
On November 3, 1997, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) submitted the final report of the case saying it was an incident of suicide and laterr the CMM Court accepted the report on November 25. However, his father Kamruddin had refused the report and filed a revision case.
On May 19, 2003, the court sent the case for judicial inquiry. About 12 years after, on August 3, 2014, Magistrate Emdadul Haque submitted the report of judicial inquiry to the CMM declaring the death as unnatural one.
Again, on December 21, 2014, Salman’s mother Nilufer Chowdhury refused the judicial inquiry report and declared no confidence against it. In her no confidence petition, she accused 11 persons including Aziz Mohammad Bhai for the murder of her son. The court granted the no confidence petition and directed RAB to conduct further inquiry of the incident. – Court Correspondent
