A Dhaka court today awarded death penalty to a youth for killing a female doctor two years back.
Convict Mohammad Faysal, 19, strangled Dr Sajia Afreen Eva, 28, on November 29, 2012, after failing to rape her at Amtola Brac Clinic in Dakkhin Khan area of the capital.
Dr Eva was a physician of the clinic where Faysal had been working as a caretaker.
Judge ABM Nizamul Haque of the Speedy Trial Tribunal-4 pronounced the judgement in presence of Faysal.
Victim’s father Monirul Islam filed a murder case with Dakshin Khan Police Station accusing Faysal and three others after the murder.
Faysal, who was on the run after killing Eva, was arrested three days after the murder.
