OC Pradeep, Inspector Liakat remanded in Major Sinha killing case
A court in Cox's Bazar on Thursday placed Teknaf Police Station officer-in-charge (OC) Pradeep Kumar Das and Baharchhara Checkpost in-charge Inspector Liakat among three on a seven-day remand in a case filed for killing former Army officer Major Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan.
The court also ordered to send four others accused to jail.
Cox's Bazar Chief Judicial Magistrate M Helaluddin placed the three accused including OC Pradeep and Inspector Liakat on remand in the evening after RAB-15 second in commander Major Mehedi Hasan pleaded to the court to place the accused on a 10-day remand for questioning.
RAB-15 official Major Mehedi Hasan appeared before the court in connection with Major (Retd) Sinha killing case filed by his eldest sister Sharmin Shahria Ferdous with another court in Cox's Bazar on Wednesday.
Those remanded were Teknaf Police Station OC Pradeep Kumar Das, Baharchhara Outpost in-charge (IC) Liakat Ali and constable Nanda Lal Rakshit.
The court also issued warrants of arrest against the two fugitive accused.
Earlier, seven accused police members surrendered before the court, while two did not surrender.
Accused Pradeep Kumar Das was taken to the court under police custody at about 5.00pm.
Pradeep Kumar Das surrendered on Thursday, hours after a Chattogram court issued warrants of the arrest of nine policemen, including the OC.
Sharmin Shahriar Ferdousi filed the case with Teknaf Senior Judicial Magistrate Court on Wednesday. The court also gave the responsibility to the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) to investigate the case.
Sinha was killed in police firing at Baharchhara police check-post at night on July 31.
