21st death anniv of Salman Shah Wednesday

The 21st death anniversary of former Dhallywood actor Salman Shah will be observed on Wednesday.
The satellite TV channels will air various programmes to pay tribute to the actor.
Shahriar Chowdhury Emon, popularly known as Salman Shah, was born in Sylhet on September 19 in 1971.
Starting his career with the one-episode TV play ‘Pathor Shomoy’, Salman’s first appearance in a major role was in ‘Keyamat Thekey Keyamat’ released in 1993. He acted in a total of 27 films in his short career.
The popular silver screen actor in the 90s mysteriously died on September 6, 1996 at the age of 25.
Following the death, his father Kamaruddin Chowdhury had filed an unnatural death case, which later turned into a murder case after one Rezvi Ahmed in a confessional statement said he had killed Salman with the help of Salman’s wife, mother-in-law and eight other people.
Rezvi, however, later disowned his confession given before the police.
Detective Branch, Criminal Investigation Department of police and a judicial probe body investigated into the case separately and submitted their reports stating that Salman’s death was a case of unnatural death, which Salman Shah’s family rejected.
On December 7, 2016, a court here asked the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to carry out further investigation into the case.
The case accused 11 persons, including the actor’s wife Samira Haque, and producer and businessman Aziz Mohammad Bhai.
The others are Salman’s mother-in-law Latifa Haque Lucy, house help Monowara Begum, Rizvi Ahmed alias Farhad, choreographer Nazrul Sheikh, “David”, Ashraful Haque Don, Rabeya Sultana Rubi, Mostak Wayeed, and Abul Hossain Khan.-UNB
