2 Rab men testify on 7-murder

Our Correspondent, Narayanganj

Two members of Rapid Action Battalion yesterday testified before a Narayanganj court in connection with the much-talked-about seven-murder case.

They are Abdus Salam and Abdus Samad of Rab-11.

The statements by the duo were recorded at the court of Senior Judicial Magistrate Monwara Begum, said Advocate Sakhawat Hossain, president of Narayanganj Bar Association. This was the first time since the murders in April when any member of the Rab-11 testified in the case as witnesses, he added.

The two Rab men yesterday told the court that they witnessed how the seven people were abducted and their bodies were dumped into the Shitalakkhya, said sources.

Three former Rab officials -- Lt Col Tareque Sayeed Mohammad, Maj Arif Hossain and Lt Commander MM Rana -- have already confessed to their involvement in the murders before the Narayanganj court.

The bodies of seven people including Narayanganj City Corporation Councillor Nazrul Islam and senior lawyer Chandan Sarkar were found floating on the river on April 30, three days after their abduction.

Later, Selina Islam Beauty, wife of Nazrul Islam, filed a case with Fatullah Model Police Station naming Nur Hossain as the main accused for the murders.
