Mahfuzur Rahman, Senior Assistant Commissioner of Detective Branch of Police and also the Investigation Officer of the case produced Gas Babu with a fresh five-day remand plea.

On June 14, Gas Babu gave a confessional statement under section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (Cr.Pc.) in which he narrated the planning of the murder and money transaction contract with Saidul Karim Mintu another leader of Awami League in Jhenaidah.

The fifth suspect in the sensational murder is Jhenaidah District Awami League General Secretary Saidul Karim Mintu, is  in jail custody after remaining in remand for several days.

On June 6, a team of Dhaka Metropolitan Police detained Babu from the Adarshapara area in Jhenaidah city.

Shimul was contacted by Babu via WhatsApp. After the killing of Azim, the killers took off his clothes and took pictures. The photo was sent to Babus WhatsApp messenger.

Anwarul Azim Anar, MP of  ruling Awami League, crossed the Darshana-Gede border into India for treatment on May 12. He stayed at his friend Gopal Biswass home in North 24 Parganas, West Bengal.

On the following day, he left to see a doctor at around noon and was expected to return in the evening.

Since then, he could not be reached by phone. Eventually, Bangladesh government confirmed his death on May 22, citing Indian police.
