An accomplice of Nur Hossain, the main accused in the Narayanganj seven-murder case, yesterday confessed before a court to his own involvement, and implicated Nur and three accused former Rab officials.
Ali Mohammad, who police claimed was the cashier of Nur Hossain, made the confession before a Senior Judicial Magistrate.
On July 19, a team of Detective Branch (DB) of police in a raid arrested him from Aulia Bazar in Akhaura of Brahmanbaria district and was sent on a six-day remand.
Officials in the office of the superintendent of police of Narayanganj told The Daily Star that nine persons had so far given their statements in the court.
The officials said they had learnt through different media reports that Nur Hossain in a Kolkata court had claimed that he was not involved in the seven-murder. The statements will help prove Nur's claim false, they added.
Meanwhile, a 7-member enquiry committee, formed following a High Court order, yesterday quizzed Assistant Director (ASP) of Rab-11 Mehedi Shahriar. The committee led by Additional Secretary to Public Administration Ministry Shahjahan Ali Mollah quizzed him in Narayanganj Circuit House.
