Mumtarin Ferdous Doreen, daughter of the murdered Jhenaidah-4 MP Anwarul Azim Anar, is set to travel to West Bengal for a DNA test to confirm if recovered body parts belong to her father.

The West Bengal Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has requested Mumtarin to provide a DNA sample to match with the flesh, hair, and other remains suspected to be those of her father.
Anars personal assistant, Abdur Rauf, stated, "A team from the Dhaka Metropolitan Polices Detective Branch will accompany us. Our documents are ready, and we plan to travel to India once the Detective Branch receives the Government Order (GO) on Sunday."

On May 28, investigators discovered body parts in a septic tank at Sanjeeva Gardens in Kolkata. These remains are suspected to be those of MP Anwarul Azim Anar, a three-time parliament member and president of the Kaliganj upazila unit of the Awami League.

Anwarul had gone to India on May 12 for medical treatment but went missing on May 13 after leaving his residence in the Borah Nagar area of Kolkata.

According to Kolkata police sources, Anwarul was taken to a flat in New Town, Kolkata, where he was allegedly strangled and his body dismembered. His daughter, Mumtarin Ferdous Doreen, filed a murder case on May 22 at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station in Dhaka.

So far, seven people have been arrested in connection with the case across Bangladesh and India. In Bangladesh, four of the five suspects have made confessional statements in court.

The West Bengal CID has already sent the recovered remains to their laboratory and are awaiting the DNA match from Mumtarin to proceed with their investigation.
