Shipra Debnath and Shahedul Islam Sifat have asked for a little time for themselves before talking about the killing of Major (retd) Sinha Md Rashed in Teknaf.
They made the remark while speaking to reporters in Cox's Bazar on Monday night.
Shipra Debnath said, "Please, pray for us. Sifat and I are very grateful to you. You were by our side, you will be by our side. That's all for now. We will talk about everything. We will tell the whole truth. Give us a little time. We are hearing so many rumours. We do not want misleading news."
Shahedul Islam Sifat told reporters, "I am mentally and physically completely healthy. I was not shot in the leg. Hopefully, there will be a fair investigation. Give us a little time."
On Sunday, Shipra Debnath, a filmmaker and student of Stamford University's Film and Media Studies Department, walked out of jail eight days after she was "falsely implicated" in a narcotics case filed by Ramu Police Station over the same incident. Sifat was released on Monday in two cases.
Major (retd) Sinha had been in Cox's Bazar with the students to make a documentary film. Earlier on July 31 night, Sinha was killed in a police firing on Cox's Bazar's Marine Drive.
After the shooting, police arrested Sifat, who was travelling with the retired major, at the spot while Shipra was picked up from a local resort. The duo was accused in two different lawsuits – attempted murder and narcotics cases.
On August 1, police produced them before the Cox's Bazar court and the court sent them to jail.
