Police preparing to produce Nur Hossain before Narayanganj court
13 November 2015, Nirapad News: Nur Hossain, the prime accused in seven-murder case was taken to Narayanganj amid stringent security measures, hours after he was repatriated from India.
“Nur Hossain was taken to Narayanganj Police Lines this morning and we are now taking preparation to produce him before the court at the quickest possible time,” police super of Narayanganj Dr Khandoker Muhid Uddin told said.
“There is no scope to take Nur Hossain on remand or make any confessional statements to this end at this stage of the seven murder case as charge-sheet has already submitted before the court,” he also said.
Indian Border Security Force (BSF) handed over Nur to Bangladesh at Benapole of Jessore around 11.30 pm yesterday (Thursday). He was wearing a bullet proof vest and a helmet at that time.
Nur, who is wanted in six murder cases out of 13 criminal cases, including two cases regarding the murder of seven people filed with different police stations of Narayanganj.
He was accused of masterminding the killing of Narayanganj City Corporation (NCC) ward councillor Nazrul Islam, his driver and three associates, senior lawyer Advocate Chandan Sarkar and his driver after their abduction from Dhaka-Narayanganj Link Road on April 27 last year. Later, their bodies were found floating in the Shitalakkhya River.
Soon after the killing Nur Hossain fled to India and was caught in Kolkata on June 15 last year on charges of illegal trespass.
Police submitted a charge sheet accusing 35 persons including Nur Hoosain before a Narayanganj court on April 8 this year in the seven murder case.
The 35 include 25 members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) including ex-top officials Tareque Sayeed Mohammad, Arif Hossain and SM Masud Rana.
Selina Islam, wife of the slain Nazrul Islam filed a naraji (no confidence) petition with the court of Senior Judicial Magistrate H M Shafikul Islam in Narayanganj against the charge sheet on May 11, as names of five accused were dropped from the charge sheet.
The petition was later rejected by the court. Following the rejection, Selina filed revision with Narayanganj district and sessions’ judge court which was also rejected by the court on November 9.
The government was awaiting formal message from its Indian counterpart to repatriate Nur Hossain, following order of a West Bengal court on October 16 last.
The court order came as the Indian home ministry had accepted a request from Bangladesh government to send Nur Hossain back home.
Indian government had decided to withdraw the cases regarding illegal entry against Nur Hossain following the request.
Earlier on October 16, additional chief judicial magistrate of North 24 Parganas district Sandipan Chakrabarty ordered repatriation of Nur Hossain.
