No idea how Sinha murder probe report leaked: home minister

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan today said that he doesn't know how the probe report on the investigation into the murder of Major (retd) Sinha was published in a newspaper.

"We can't say now whether the report published in media is true. We're yet to go through the report; we'll read it and then talk about it," said the minister while responding to a question from reporters at the secretariat.

Those who have published the report, have revealed it when the trial is underway, said the minister.

He did not make any comment about the report, however.

"If the court wants this report, we will give it to the court. We will make every effort to ensure that an impartial report goes to the judges," he said.

RAB is currently investigating the case under the directive  of the court, said the minister.

"We don't want anything to be leaked which will affect investigation. Judges don't want it either," said Asaduzzaman.

The probe body, formed by the home ministry over the killing of Major (retd) Sinha Md Rashed Khan in Teknaf, submitted its report to Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Monday.

Mohammad Mizanur Rahman, head of the probe body and Chattogram Additional Division Commissioner (development), submitted the probe report.

The probe body was formed on August 3 and was initially scheduled to submit its report within seven working days, but it got its timeline extended several times.

Major (retd) Sinha was killed at Baharchhara police check-post on July 31.

Sharmin Shahriar Ferdous, elder sister of Sinha, filed a case with Teknaf Senior Judicial Magistrate's Court on August 5.
