A group of brutes led by Kamrul beat the boy in Kumargaon Bus Stand area of Sylhet on the morning of July 8. His “crime”, they claimed, was stealing.


The savage torture on Rajon sparked fury also among the Bangladeshi migrants in the kingdom, said Md Altaf Hossain, first secretary (labour) at Bangladesh Consulate in Jeddah.

In a video made available on Facebook yesterday, members of Bangladeshi community in Jeddah were seen having a scuffle over taping Kamrul after catching him at a suburb in the city.

Kamrul, the accused killer of Rajon, is seen pushed and shoved on the street by several men. He was barefooted and panting. In a local Sylheti dialect he was crying out, “Oh mother! Oh mother!” 

They went to the house in Al-Jamia'ah district where Kamrul was said to have been staying after returning from Bangladesh.
Later, the locals handed Kamrul over to Saudi police.
In another widely shared video clip, Kamrul with his hands tied up was seen standing among other Bangladeshis. A man, whose identity was not provided, narrated how they captured Kamrul with the help of a local correspondent of Bangladeshi private television channel.

“We are able to identify the real person and he (Kamrul) confessed his crime,” he said adding “He regretted his crime and sought forgiveness from the people of the country (Bangladesh),” he said.

Kamrul was in tears in another video and said, “I did wrong, please forgive me,”  
With his hands tied up, while answering to the questions of the Ntv reporter, he admitted that he along with others beat Rajon.
These three videos appeared to have been taken on the day of his capture in Jeddah.
