They also quizzed those who took Tonu to the hospital, the physician who declared Tonu dead upon arrival and the hospital ayah who was on duty at that time.

After the interrogation, Peyar, a private university student, was taken to the spot inside the cantonment where Tonu’s body was found. Later, he was dropped at his residence, a CID source said.

Earlier, Rapid Action Battalion and police also interrogated Peyar Ahmed over the gruesome murder.

Quoting Tonu’s cousin, Laiju Jahan, the CID members said Peyar used to tease Tonu over mobile phone.

Dr KP Saha, head of the Forensic Department of Comilla Medical College Hospital, said they received the viscera report of the first postmortem. “We’ll make the final autopsy report public once the results of few more tests are available,” he said.
Contacted, Jalal Uddin Ahmed, senior assistant superintendent of CID, Comilla, said the investigation is on and it is not possible right now to say anything for the sake of investigation.

Meanwhile, the whereabouts of Mizanur Rahman Sohagh, 21, a friend of Tonu’s brother Anwar Hossain, could not be known yet as he was reportedly picked up by plainclothes police around 1:30 am on March 27, said his sister Khaleda Akter.

Earlier on Saturday, the CID members interrogated the family members of slain college student Sohagi Jahan Tonu at its office in Comilla.
