Superstar Salman Shah, one of the most iconic figures in the country’s film industry, was not murdered by anyone but he committed suicide over family feud, Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) said.
DIG Banaj Kumar Majumder, chief of PBI, disclosed the information at a press briefing on Monday.
Salman Shah in the 90s mysteriously died on September 6, 1996, at 25 and his father Kamaruddin Chowdhury had filed an unnatural death case which he later turned into a murder case when one Rezvi Ahmed was arrested from the house of Salman’s mother, who said he had killed Salman with the help of Salman’s wife and mother-in-law and eight other accomplices. Rezvi, however, later disowned his confession given before the police.
Detective Branch, Criminal Investigation Department of police and a judicial probe body investigated the case separately and submitted their reports saying that Salman’s death was a case of unnatural death, which Salman Shah’s family rejected.
On December 7 of 2016, a Dhaka court has asked the Police Bureau of Investigation to carry out further investigations into the case filed over the death of Salman Shah for the fresh inquiry.
Nilufar said in the petition a total of 11 people including Aziz Mohammad Bhai, might have been involved in the killing of her son.
The case accused 11 persons, including the actor’s wife Samira Haque, producer and businessman Aziz Mohammad Bhai.
The other accused are Salman’s mother-in-law Latifa Haque Lucy, house helps Monowara Begum, Rizvi Ahmed alias Farhad, choreographer Nazrul Sheikh, ‘David’, Ashraful Haque Don, Rabeya Sultana Rubi, Mostak Wayeed, Abul Hossain Khan-all presumably Bhai’s associates.
