Mohib Ullah Murder: One of five arrestees ‘confesses’
One of the five accused arrestees in connection with Rohingya leader Mohib Ullah murder yesterday admitted before the court that he was directly involved in the operation, court sources said.
During the confessional statement under section 164, Mohammad Elias told the court of Senior Judicial Magistrate Helal Uddin that after the killing of Mohib Ullah, he informed their mastermind about the success of the operation through mobile phone.
He described the court in detail who were involved in the killing operation, said the sources.
Elias, son of Rojok Ali is the head majhi (block chief) of C block in number 6 Lombasia Rohingya camp in Kutupalong. Though illiterate, he is known as Master Elias among Rohingyas.
Official, who is investigating Mohib Ullah murder case, told The Daily Star that the four other accused, who are on remand, gave important information to the police.
"But they are yet to give any confessional statements," he said.
Armed Police Battalion arrested Elias on last Sunday.
Mohib Ullah, who led the Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights, was shot dead at Kutupalong camp around 8:30pm on September 29.
His brother Habib Ullah filed the case with Ukhiya Police Station on September 30. The complainant gave details of the murder but did not accuse any individual.
