In a significant development, the West Bengal CID announced on Friday that preparations are underway to extradite Muhammed Siyam Hussain from Nepal to Kolkata. Hussain is a key suspect in the brutal murder of Bangladeshi MP Anwarul Azim Anar, who was last seen in the city.

According to sources, Hussain fled to Nepal after the gruesome incident, which took place in Kolkata's New Town area. He was apprehended near Nepal's border last Thursday. Authorities decided to transfer Hussain to India as the crime fell under their jurisdiction.

The search for Anar's body parts has been ongoing since May 18, following a complaint filed by Gopal Biswas, a resident of Baranagar in north Kolkata. Anar arrived in Kolkata for medical treatment on May 12 and had been staying at Biswas's home. The Bangladeshi MP went missing on May 13, sparking a relentless search operation.
