Shimla was quizzed at the unit's office at Dampara Police Lines in the city from 10am to 1:30pm on Thursday (Sept 12).
After interrogation, Shimla told the reporters that she divorced her husband Palash Ahmed as it seemed to her he had psychological problems.
Shimla said that she did not know it for sure why he attempted to hijack the plane.
CTTC Inspector Rajesh Barua, who is the investigating officer of the case, said the information provided by Shimla during the interrogation would be crosschecked later.
Shimla suspected that Palash attempted to hijack the plane out of frustration but she could not explain the reason behind it, the inspector said.
On February 24, the Boeing 737-800 aircraft of the national flag carrier, Biman Bangladesh Airlines, made an emergency landing at Shah Amanat International Airport in Chittagong from Dhaka after Palash allegedly attempted to hijack the Dubai-bound flight.
He was killed in an eight-minute operation by the members of army para commando unit.
