Not only Shimu’s husband, Nobel, but one of his friends, Abdullah Farhad, was also taken into custody for further questioning. Raima Islam Shimu’s corpse was sent to Sir Salimullah Medical College Hospital for an autopsy on Tuesday as it showed multiple wound marks.
While the reason for this murder is not yet known, several media outlets in Bangladesh suggest that there might be a family feud that triggered such a heinous act. There are also reports that a well-known Bangladeshi actor may be involved in the murder case. Shimu was a member of the Bangladesh Film Artists Association and the police investigation is looking at all possible options that may be related to the case. A Bangladeshi daily claimed that this influential actor is also a member of the Bangladesh Film Artists Association.
Shimu lived with her husband and child and she disappeared on Sunday morning. Later, his family filed a missing diary, suspecting something was wrong.
Raima Islam Shimu made her acting debut in the 1998 film “Bartaman” and has since starred in no less than 25 films and a few TV shows.
