Sinha murder case: Ex-OC Pradeep, Likat shifted to Kashimpur Jail

Former OC Pradeep Kumar Das and police inspector Liakat Ali, who were last month sentenced to death for the murder of Major Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan (retired), have been shifted to Kashimpur Jail in Gazipur.

Both were taken to Kashimpur Jail from Chattogram Jail around 8:30pm Wednesday amid tight security, said Senior Jail Superintendent Gias Uddin, reports UNB.

A Cox’s Bazar court on January 31 sentenced former OC Pradeep and inspector Liakat to death and six others to life imprisonment in the Major Sinha murder case.

District and Sessions Judge Mohammad Ismail pronounced the judgment in the presence of all the 15 accused, said Public Prosecutor Faridul Alam.

The court had, however, acquitted seven other accused in the case.

Sinha murder

On July 31, 2020, Major Sinha was shot dead at the Shamlapur police checkpost in Baharchhara Union of Cox's Bazar while he was returning to the town after filming for a documentary.

On August 5, 2020, Sinha's sister, Sharmin Shahriar Ferdous, moved the Teknaf Senior Judicial Magistrate's Court accusing nine members of law enforcement agencies of the murder, including former officer-in-charge of Teknaf Model Police Station Pradeep Kumar Das and Baharchhara Police Outpost inspector Liakat Ali.

On December 13, the same year, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) submitted a charge-sheet against 15 people, including ex-OC Pradeep, police informer Ayaz and three APBn members, in the case.

On June 27, 2021, the court framed charges against them.
