DHAKA, June 11, 2024 (BSS) - A Dhaka court today scrapped the plea for bail by accused Silisti Rahman in a case lodged over the abduction and murder of Awami League lawmaker of Jenaidah-4 Anwarul Azim Anar in Kolkata, India.

According to the Kolkata police sources, Anwarul was taken to a flat in New Town in Kolkata, where he was believed to be strangled to death and his body was cut into pieces.
