Another Rab man makes 'confession'
Another Rab man, arrested in connection with the sensational seven-murder in Narayanganj, yesterday gave a confessional statement about his involvement in the killings before a Narayanganj court.
Bazlur Bazlur Rahman gave his deposition in two cases filed in connection with the seven-murder incident. Senior Judicial Magistrate HM Shafiqul Islam recorded the statement.
With this, 12 Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) members, among the 15 arrested, gave confessional statements before the courts, court sources said.
On Monday night, detectives caught assistant sub-inspectors Bazlur and Abul Kalam Azad, and havildar Nasir Uddin. The trio were posted to Rab-11 in late April this year when the grisly murders took place.
A Narayanganj court placed the three Rab men on seven days' remand in the murder case after investigators produced them before it seeking 10 days' remand.
Bazlur gave a description about the role of the Rab personnel, including himself, in the abduction and killing of seven people, said Additional Public Prosecutor KM Fazlur Rahman.
Rab men's involvement in the killing came to light when victim Nazrul's father-in-law Shahidul Islam alleged that some Rab personnel had abducted and killed Nazrul in exchange for Tk 6 crore from Narayanganj ward councillor Nur Hossain and his aides.
Narayanganj city panel mayor Nazrul Islam, his driver and three associates, senior lawyer Chandan Sarker and his driver were abducted on April 27 from Dhaka-Narayanganj Link Road.
Their bodies were found floating in the Shitalakkhya a few days later.
