Attorney General Mahbubey Alam termed the High Court verdict on the seven-murder cases as exemplary and relieving.
"This is an exemplary judgment. We are relieved," AG Mabubey Alam said.
The AG’s reaction came just after the HC upheld death for 15 convicts while commuting the penalty of 11 others – all of whom were sentenced to death by lower court in the sensational Narayanganj seven-murder cases.
However, the court upheld the jail sentence of the other accused.
Former Awami League man Nur Hossain, the then commanding officer of Rab-11 in Narayanganj Lt Col Tareque Sayeed Mohammad, the then company commanders of Rab-11 Maj Arif Hossain and Lt Commander Masud Rana are among the convicts who were awarded the capital punishment.
About the death sentence of Rab officials, the attorney general further said Rapid Action Battalion is elite and disciplined forces and the entire law enforcement agency should not be blamed for criminal offences of some of its dishonest members.
Responding to a query, he said he would think about appeal petition seeking death of 11 accused whose penalty has been commuted to life terms after going through the full verdict.
