First death sentence execution in Dinajpur jail

Death sentence of a convict was executed in Dinajpur Jail yesterday -- a first in the history of the 167-year-old prison.

Jail officials said the execution of Abdul Haque, 55, of Bhaktipur village in Mithapukur upazila of Rangpur, was completed at 12:01am. Abdul Haque was convicted for killing his wife in a case filed in 2002 under Women and Children Repression Prevention Act. On March 5, 2007, the Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal-1 in Rangpur sentenced Abdul Haque to death by hanging. The convict had been imprisoned in different jails since he was arrested on August 28, 2002.
