JU student Zubair killing verdict on Feb 8
04 February 2015, Nirapad News: A Dhaka court on Wednesday deferred the sensational Jahangirnagar University student Zubair killing case to February 8.
Judge ABM Nizamul Haque of the Speedy Trial Tribunal passed the order when acting Special Public Prosecutor of the tribunal Taslima Yeasmin Dipa sought time as the seven accused in the murder case could not be produced before the court for security reasons due to the ongoing countrywide Hartal enforced by the BNP-led 20-party alliance.
On January 28, Judge ABM Nizamul Haque set Wednesday for passing the judgment in the case and on that day, the court also sent seven accused in the murder case to jail turning down their bail petitions.
The accused are Nazmul Hossain Plaban, Kamruzzaman Shohagh, Mazharul Islam, Muhammad Mahmudul Hasan Masud, Nazmus Sakim Tapu, Shafiul Alam Setu and Abhinandan Kundu.
Zubair Ahmed, an English Department student of the university, was beaten by some BCL activists on January 8, 2012 and he later succumbed to his injuries at United Hospital in Dhaka city the following day.
A case was later filed with Ashulia thana in this connection. Police submitted a charge sheet against 13 students of the university on April 8, 2012.
On September 8 last year, the Speedy Trial Tribunal-4 framed charges against the 13 BCL activists in the murder case.
