The West Bengal CID has intensified its investigation into the murder of Bangladeshi MP Anwarul Azim Anar. According to senior officials, the prime suspect, Mohammad Siyam Hussain, is being interrogated following his arrest by the Nepal Police and subsequent extradition to India.

Hussain was escorted to a flat in New Town, Kolkata, where Anar was last seen on May 12. This move aims to help the CID trace the missing body parts of the deceased politician and identify the tools used in the crime. The investigation hinges on Hussain's cooperation, as he remains a critical figure in the case.

Brought to West Bengal on Saturday evening, Hussain has been remanded to 14-day CID custody by a Barasat court in North 24 Parganas district. The hunt for Anar, who arrived in Kolkata for medical reasons, began after a complaint was filed by Gopal Biswas, an acquaintance of the MP, six days post-disappearance.
