Justice Bhabani Prasad Singha and Justice Mustafa Zaman Islam, who delivered the judgement in the case in August last year, have signed the verdict containing around 770 pages on Wednesday, the court sources said today.

On August 22 last year, the HC upheld death penalty of 15 convicted persons, including three former top Rab officials and expelled Awami League leader Nur Hossain, for their involvement in conspiracy, abduction and killing of seven Narayanganj men in 2014.

The judges, however, commuted the capital punishment of 11 others to life imprisonment -- all of whom were sentenced to death by a Narayanganj Court in the murder case. They also upheld jail terms of nine others for various terms ranging from seven to 17 years.

Seven people, including Narayanganj City Corporation panel mayor Nazrul Islam and senior lawyer Chandan Sarker, were abducted from the Dhaka-Narayanganj link road on April 27, 2014. Later, their bodies were found floating in the Shitalakkhya river.
