In a chilling development, the West Bengal CID on Sunday unearthed parts of human bones near a canal in South 24 Parganas district, intensifying the investigation into the gruesome murder of Bangladeshi MP Anwarul Azim Anar, according to a senior official.

The discovery was made on the south-eastern bank of Bagjola canal in Bhangar's Krishnamati village, following the interrogation of key suspect Mohammad Siyam Hussain, who was arrested by Nepal Police and extradited to India.

'The bone parts appear to be of a human being as suggested by medical officers and forensic experts who were present when these were recovered,' the CID officer revealed. A suo moto case has been registered at the Bijoyganj Bazar Police Station, and the bones will soon undergo forensic examination.

The CID continues its search for more body pieces of the Bangladeshi politician. Earlier, investigators discovered around 3.5 kg of flesh from a septic tank in New Town, where the MP was last seen on May 12.

The MP's daughter is expected to arrive in Kolkata next week for a DNA test to aid in the ongoing investigation. Meanwhile, Hussain has been taken to the flat in New Town to assist officers in locating additional body parts and tools used in the crime.

Hussain was brought to West Bengal and placed under 14-day CID custody by a local court. Initial findings indicate the MP's close friend Akhtaruzzaman, a US citizen, paid Rs 5 crore to the perpetrators. The victim was reportedly strangled and dismembered, according to law enforcement sources.

The investigation began after Gopal Biswas, an acquaintance of the MP, lodged a missing person's report when Anar, who had arrived in Kolkata on May 12 for medical treatment, failed to return from a doctor's appointment on May 13.
