RAB image to be sullied for failure in case: HC

The High Court (HC) yesterday (Thursday) observed that the glorious image of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) would be sullied if it fails to identify the real killers and arrest them after unearthing the real picture of the journalist couple Sagor-Runi murder case. An HC bench, comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman, came up with the observation while delivering its verdict on a petition filed by an accused, Tanvir Rahman, who is now on bail. It is very sorrowful and disappointing that members of law enforcement agencies could not unearth the real picture of the killing case through investigation, despite the lapse of many years since the incident had taken place, the HC bench observed.

The glorious image of the elite force to prevent militant outfits, terrorism, control drugs, rescue illegal arms would be damaged if it fails to bring the real culprits to book after completing the investigation into the case, the HC bench observed.
