DB eye on ‘three killers of Cesare’

The Dhaka Metropolitan Detective Branch (DB) of police has claimed that the mystery behind the killing of Italian national Cesare Tavella has been unearthed. Three people who have been claimed to have taken part in the killing have been identified and they are under watch, says DB deputy commissioner (east) Mahbub Alam, who is the chief of the committee formed to help in investigation into the case.

Mahbub Alam told The Report on Thursday, “A drive is going on to recover the weapons and the motorcycle used in the killing. On recovery of these the three killers will be arrested and presented before the media.”

Tavella was the project manager for the Profitable Opportunities for Food Security project of the Netherlands-based private organization ICCO Cooperation Proofs.

Miscreants killed him on the Road No. 90 at Gulshan-2 in the city in the evening on September 28 last. The police investigation revealed that two persons took part in the killing. Besides, another person was waiting there with a motorcycle.

An official involved with the investigation told The Report that a team led by Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) started identifying the killers by examining the manual sources, mobile tracking and the footage of the close-circuit cameras. Based on the footage at least 20 people including motorcyclists were identified last week.

Seeking anonymity, this official said after talking to eyewitnesses and viewing the video footage the authorities examined evidences and finally kept three people on the list of suspects. They are under watch.

Talking to the investigators, it was learnt that professional and hired killers were used for the killing. Some investigators also said an international group working against Bangladesh conducted the killing to leave the government in trouble.

On the other hand, Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) joint commissioner for DB Manirul Islam also claimed that three killers participated in the killing.

He told The Report on Thursday, “On recovery of the weapons and the motorcycle used in the killing the mystery behind the incident will be unearthed. But it has been clear that the killers are hired goons.”
