Narayanganj 7-murder: No confidence plea order July 8
A court in Narayanganj today fixed July 8 to pass an order on the petition filed against the charge sheet submitted by the detectives dropping the names of five accused in sensational Narayanganj seven-murder case.
Selina Islam, wife of Narayanganj City Corporation councillor Nazrul Islam who is one of the victims, filed the petition with the court of Senior Judicial Magistrate H M Shafikul Islam in Narayanganj on May 11.
After hearing the petition, Judge HM Shafikul fixed the date for passing an order on the petition, reports our Narayanganj correspondent.
According to the petition, the charge sheet in Narayanganj seven murder was submitted by the detectives dropping names of five people mentioned in the complaint. Many other names were also dropped although their involvement was found with the killings during the investigations, Nazrul’s wife claimed.
Earlier on April 8, detectives submitted the charge sheet of the seven-murder case against 35 naming local Awami League leader Nur Hossain as the prime accused.
The 35 include 25 members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) including ex-top officials Tareque Sayeed Mohammad, Arif Hossain and SM Masud Rana.
In April last year, seven people including Narayanganj city panel mayor Nazrul Islam and senior lawyer Chandan Sarker were abducted.
Their bodies were later found floating on the Shitalakkhya river.
Nazrul's father-in-law Shahidul Islam alleged that Rab personnel abducted and killed Nazrul in exchange for Tk 6 crore from a local ward councillor Nur Hossain.
Three former Rab officials, Tareque, in-law of a minister, Arif and Rana confessed their involvement to the killing.
