Rajon was tortured to death by a group of brutes who were "punishing" him in Kumargaon Bus Stand area of Sylhet on July 8. Rajon's "crime", the accused claimed, was theft.
A case was filed over the incident by the victim’s father, where Kamrul was mentioned as the prime suspect. The incident drew criticism both in home and abroad.
Kamrul, who managed to flee to Saudi Arabia, was detained by Bangladeshis living there. The enraged migrants had handed him over to local police.
