The runaway master and drivers of MV Moyur-2 launch are frequently changing their location to avoid arrest.
"However, they will not be able to do so for long. Our detectives are tracking their movement," Rezaul Karim Bhuiyan, officer-in-charge (OC) of Sadarghat police station, told The Business Standard yesterday.
"Now our priority is to arrest all the accused and throw them behind the bars."
However, a Dhaka Court granted a three-day remand for Mosaddek Chhoyad, owner of Moyur-2, on the same day.
"He was granted a three-day remand as the investigating officer of the case had produced him before the court with a seven-day remand prayer," said OC Rezaul.
Tipped-off, earlier, a team of river police arrested Mosaddek from the capital's Sobhanbagh on early July 9.
Before Mosaddek, river police also arrested Moyur-2 Supervisor Abdus Salam.
On June 30, police filed a case with Keraniganj police station against seven people over the capsize of Morning Bird launch in the Buriganga River.
Mosaddek was the main accused in the case.
On June 29, at least 34 people were killed as Moyur-2 crashed into and ran over Morning Bird.
