The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) is going to submit the chargesheet of the much-talked retired army major Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan murder case on Sunday mentioning that the killing was preplanned.
The chargesheet of the case, which has been under investigation for more than four months, is expected to be submitted to the Cox's Bazar court.
RAB, the investigating agency of the case, has so far found evidence of the involvement of 13 to 15 people in the murder. Of them, 14 are currently in jail.
Lieutenant Colonel Ashique Billah, director of RAB Legal and Media wing, told The Business Standard on Saturday night that they have already prepared the chargesheet.
"We will submit it to the RAB director general on Sunday, if he permits then we will submit it before the Cox's Bazar court," he added.
But the RAB official did not share any more details of the chargesheet.
According to the RAB sources, former Teknaf Police Station OC Pradeep Kumar, Baharchhara camp Inspector Liaquat Ali, SI Nandadulal Rakshit, several policemen from Teknaf Police Station and three others from Armed Police Battalion-APBN and three locals have been arrested in the case. No information was available about the other one.
Retired major Sinha was killed in police firing at Shamlapur police check-post at Teknaf's Baharchhara union, on Cox's Bazar Marine Drive, on the night of 31 July this year.
Later on 5 August, Sinha's sister Sharmin Shahriar Ferdous filed a murder case against nine people, including former Teknaf Police Station OC Pradeep Kumar Das.
The main accused in the case was Liakat Ali, the inspector in charge of the Baharchhara police outpost, who shot Sinha. Teknaf Police Station OC (dismissed) Pradeep Kumar Das has been made the No. 2 accused.
Liaquat had consulted with him over the phone before the shooting, the statement reads. Liaquat shot Sinha in the head with a cold blood at the OC's "persuasion and direction". It is alleged in the case that Pradeep later went to the spot and tried to distort Sinha by hitting him on the face and various parts of the body with his shoes.
The third accused in the case is Teknaf Police Station SI Dulal Rakshit, who filed a case under the Narcotics and Weapons Act after Sinha's death. The seven accused policemen then surrendered to the court. In the course of investigation, RAB arrested a total of 14 people, including three locals, including APBN and Pradeep's bodyguard, in connection with the murder.
