A Dhaka court yesterday again asked the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to submit by August 20 the probe report on a case filed over the death of film actor Salman Shah in September 1996.
Metropolitan Magistrate Debabrata Biswas passed the order after PBI Inspector Sirajul Islam, also investigation officer of the case, failed to submit any probe report yesterday.
With this PBI took four times to complete the investigation in the case.
On December 7 in 2016, another Dhaka court ordered the PBI for further investigation into the death of Shahriar Chowdhury Imon popularly known as Salman Shah.
The court passed the order after Salman's mother Nilufar Chowdhury filed a no-confidence petition against the order of February 10, 2015, which directed Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) to investigate the case.
A probe report submitted on July 9, 2014 said the actor committed suicide in his Eskaton residence on September 6, 1996.
Nilufar alleged that in the past, there have been “intentional” efforts to pass the death off as a suicide.
Salman Shah was a popular silver screen actor in the 90s. He mysteriously died at the age of 25. His father Kamaruddin Chowdhury had filed an unnatural death case which he later turned into a murder case.
