Aktaruzzaman Shahin has claimed that he was in Bangladesh when Jhenidah-4 constituencys Anwarul Azim Anar MP was murdered in Indian state of West Bengal.

He made the claim while talking to a private television channel of Bangladesh from the United States.
Shahin said, "I have been implicated in Anar murder case deliberately. I saw in the newspapers when the incident had happened. I was in Bangladesh at that time. If my passport records are checked, it will be found that I was not present at the place of occurrence."

When his attention was drawn to the allegation of a Tk 5 crore deal he made with a killing mission, he said, "It is being told that I gave them Tk 5 crore. How did I give Tk 5 crore? How did I get such a large sum of money? Now, what can I do if it is told to people?."

He further said, "If I did anything wrong, they should arrest me. If they have any proof, they should show it. I will not get justice in Bangladesh. So, I have returned to the United States since Im an American citizen."

Anwarul Azim Anar MP went to Kolkata in India on May 12 last. Since then he had been missing. On Wednesday (May 22), the Home Minister said MP Anar was killed in Kolkata.

DMPs Additional Police Commissioner (DB) Mohammad Harun-Or-Rashid held a press conference early Thursday afternoon.

He said Anar murder plan was hatched at two houses of Aktaruzzaman Shahin in Dhaka two to three months ago. He was the mastermind of the killing.
