HABIGANJ, Oct 10: Habiganj Sessions Court on Wednesday sentenced a man to death for murdering a youth in 2009.
Habiganj District and Sessions Judge Amzad Hossain handed down the verdict. He gave the death sentence to Arobindu Das, 33, son of Manindra Chandra Das of Chowki Village under Nabiganj Upazila of the district for murdering Satyajit Das, 19. The court acquitted eight other accused of the charge of murder as they were not involved in the crime.

The death-row convict earlier gave confessional statement before the Judicial Magistrate Court under section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) saying that he committed the murder after not getting the money (Tk 1000) Satyajit borrowed from him. Habiganj District and Sessions Judge Amzad Hossain in the verdict also ordered Tk 10 thousand as fine for the murder. If the death-row convict fails to pay the fine, it will be realised from selling his properties, the court ordered. According to the case documents, murdered Satyajit Das, son of Nakul Chandra Das of Chandipur Village under Daulatpur Union in Baniachong Upazila, went to hear Kirtan, songs of Hindu religion, on February 11, 2009, and remained missing since then. On February 15, police recovered his decomposed body from a local ditch.

The victim's sister Anika Rani Das filed a case with Baniachong Police Station accusing unnamed persons on February 16, 2009. After investigation, police submitted charge sheet against nine accused on June 13 of the same year. After recording statement of 18 witnesses, the court announced the verdict.
