BSS, Cox’s Bazar
7 accused in ex-major Sinha death case sent to jail

 even accused in the case filed over the death of Maj (retd) Sinha Md Rashed Khan were sent to jail rejecting their bail plea as they surrendered to Cox’s Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Court here today.

The court also granted a seven-day remand for first three accused and asked the investigation agency Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) to quiz the four others at the jail gate on RAB’s plea of 10-day remand for the seven accused.

Judge of the senior judicial magistrate court Helal Uddin passed the order. Public prosecutor Advocate Faridul Islam stood for the state while

Advocate Rakhal Chandra Mitra and Advocate Md Jakaria represented the accused in the court.

On Wednesday, Sinha’s elder sister Sharmin Shahriya Ferdous filed a case accusing nine persons in the death incident of the retired army
officer.

The accused are Liakat Ali, officer-in-charge of Shamlapur Baharchhara investigation centre, Teknaf thana OC Pradip Kumar Das, sub-inspector (SI) Nanda Dulal Rakkhit, constables Safanur Karim, Kamal Hossain and Abdullah Al Mamun, assistant sub-inspectors (ASIs) Liton Mia and Tutul and Constable Md Mostafa.

On that day, the court took the case in cognizance giving order to elite force RAB to investigate the incident.

It also asked Taknaf than to record the case as a regular one while the case was filed at the police station after the court order reached there at 10pm on Wednesday.

Members of RAB and police took Teknaf OC Pradip Kumar Das, the number 2 accused in the case, to Cox’s Bazar court this morning from
his Chattogram residence where he was staying on leave showing the cause of illness. Six others accused were taken to the court in the
afternoon.

ASI Tutul and Constable Md Mostafa were not produced before the court. Police sources said Sinha Rashed Khan, who retired as a major in

the Bangladesh Army, was coming to Cox’s Bazar from Teknaf in his private vehicle with another person around 10:30pm on Friday.

When police halted his vehicle at Shamlapur Baharchhara check-post under Teknaf thana on marine drive and attempted a search, an
altercation ensued.

Police then opened fire as the army officer brandished his pistol. The army officer was seriously injured and was taken to Cox’s Bazaar
Sadar Hospital where on-duty physicians declared him dead.

The government formed a high-powered body to probe into the death of an ex-army major and asked to submit its report detailing the eason behind the incident within seven working days.

Additional Divisional Commissioner of Chittagong M Mizanur Rahman, Additional Deputy Inspector General of Police, Chittagong Range Md
Zakir Hossain, General Officer Commanding (GOC) of Ramu 10 Infantry Division representative Lieutenant Colonel Sajjad and Additional
district magistrate of Cox’s Bazar Md Shajahan Ali are in the committee.

On Tuesday, the probe body began investigating the death of ex-army major while the committee members visited the scene today and talked
with several witnesses and took their statements.
