A Cox’s Bazar court on Monday has sentenced two ex-police personnel, former OC Pradip Kumar Das and Liakat Ali to death for the murder of Major Sinha Md Rashed Khan. And six other suspects in the case were sentenced to life in prison.
Former Sub Inspector Nanda Dulal Raxit, ex-constable Rubel Sharma, former ASI Sagar Deb, and three police sources Nurul Amin, Nezam Uddin and Mohammad Awaz were sentenced to life in prison.
Officers of the law in Cox’s Bazar shot and killed retired army officer Sinha in an egregious abuse of their authority, sparking a public outcry in July 2020.
Major Sinha Md Rashed Khan (36) was a member of the Special Security Force tasked with guarding the prime minister.
