Former general manager (admin) of Chittagong Urea Fertiliser Ltd (CUFL) Enamul Hoque fainted right after a Chittagong court awarded him death penalty along with 13 other accused in the 10-truck arms haul case.
Meanwhile, former Directorate General of Forces Intelligence (DGFI) director Maj Gen (retd) Rezzakul Haider Chowdhury said, "It is a planned verdict. I have nothing to say against it”.
Rezzakul was giving his immediate reaction over the verdict against him.
“I was a member of the committee formed to investigate the incident. Former secretary Omar Faruk was also a member. He has been coerced into giving false statement against me,” he added.
The court handed death penalty to 14 people including Jamaat chief and then industries minister Motiur Rahman Nizami and then state minister for home Lutfozzaman Babar for smuggling in 10 truckloads of firearms in 2004.
The huge cache of arms and ammunition which included 4,930 sophisticated firearms of different types, 840 rocket launchers, 300 rockets, 27,020 grenades, 2,000 grenade-launching tubes, 6,392 magazines and 11.41 million bullets were recovered on April 2, 2004 at the jetty of Chittagong Urea Fertiliser Ltd (CUFL).
