PBC News: The High Court on Thursday refused to grant bail to Md Abdul Aziz alias Aiaz, an accused in the Major (Retd) Sinha Md Rashed Khan murder case.
The HC bench of Justice Krishna Debnath and Justice KM Zahid Sarwar rejected the bail prayer of Abdul Aziz.
Arrested accused Abdul Aziz did not mention in the bail petition that the allegation brought against him was of criminal conspiracy behind the murder, Deputy Attorney General Sarwar Hossain said.
He said Abdul Aziz was a source of the main accused–suspended Teknaf OC Pradeep Kumar Das and suspended inspector Liaqat Ali of Baharchhara Investigation Centre.
Aziz’s lawyer Amirul Islam said he will move the bail petition before another HC bench next week.
Attorney General AM Amin Uddin opposed the bail petition of Abdul Aziz during virtual hearing of the matter.
Sinha was killed at an APBn checkpoint on the Cox’s Bazar-Teknaf Marine Drive at the night of July 31. Local police said suspended inspector Liaqat’s team had taken over the check post from three APBn officers before the killing incident.
Sharmin Shahriar Ferdous, elder sister of Sinha, had filed the murder case with a local court on August 5. Later, RAB was given the responsibility of investigating the case.
