Foreign Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said on Wednesday that the Kolkata Police did not find the body of Jhenaidah-4 lawmaker Md Anwarul Azim (Anar) in the flat where he is believed to have been killed.

The minister also said it was a planned killing, so it is not a state issue.
"An investigation is underway as to how the murder took place. The Ministry of Home Affairs will give details in this regards, however, the local mission is in regular contact with the Kolkata Police," the Minister said while speaking at a seminar at Dhaka University.

It is believed that he has been killed in a flat in New Town, Kolkata, but his body has not been found there, Hasan said.

"The Detective Branch has arrested some people, including the "mastermind" of the murder, however, Kolkata Police has also arrested two suspects," he said.

"MP Anars murder is a sad matter. As the matter is under investigation; not much can be said about it," he added.

Jhenaidah-4 MP Anwarul Azim Anar went to India on May 12 for treatment through the Darshana border. He mysteriously disappeared on May 16. Gopal Biswas, a friend and a resident of Baranagar in India, filed a missing persons report with the local police station on May 18 after he could not contact Anwarul Azim.
