Convicts’ families to appeal against HC verdict: Defence counsel

Family members of the convicts, who were sentenced death in the sensational Narayanganj seven-murder cases, will file appeal against the High Court, said defence counsel.

"Family members of my clients expressed desire to file appeal against the verdict with the SC," Mansurul Haque Chowdhury, a defence counsel for Tareq Sayeed and M Rana, told The Daily Star.

The decision came just after the High Court 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.
