The arrested are Selim Raza, Tanzil Hasan Lavlu and Hafizul Islam.
They were produced in court on Thursday by the police asking for 10-day remand.
Police seized the footage recorded in the close-circuit television camera set in the bank that showed Selim Reza shooting the officer.
Sources in the bank said that at about 6:30pm on February 20, Mahfuzur checked the bank’s ATM booth and on his return he faced Selim Reza who after a heated exchange shot him.
Their colleagues rushed to the scene hearing the gunfire and took the injured man to Narsingdi Sadar Hospital where doctors declared him dead.
His body has been taken to the hospital morgue for autopsy.
Mizanur Rahman Azad, victim’s brother, filed a murder case.
Firoz Uddin, assistant vice president of the bank posted in Narsingdi, told New Age that he could not shed any light on the case as he had joined on February 22.
