'Besides working on the Rohingya issue, he also led various anti-narcotics drives at the border'

Army Major (rtd) Sinha Md Rashed Khan, who was killed in police firing on July 31 in Cox’s Bazar, also served at the BGB Battalion 2 in Teknaf for four months.

During his posting there, he led several anti-narcotics drives as well as issues related to the Rohingya crisis, Lt Col Mohammad Faisal Hasan Khan, commanding officer of BGB Battalion 2 in Teknaf, told Dhaka Tribune on Thursday.

He said: “Major (rtd) Sinha was the operations officer here from October 2017 to January 2018 (four months).”

“Besides working on the Rohingya issue, he also led various anti-narcotics drives at the border.”

However, as of yet, there is no specific information that links the murder incident of the retired army man with him serving at Teknaf BGB.

Earlier on July 31 around 9pm, Major (retd) Sinha was killed at Shamlapur checkpost of Cox’s Bazar-Teknaf marine drive in Baharchara union.

Sifat, who was with Sinha, was arrested right after the killing and sent to jail the next day after police pressed charges against him. He was released on bail on August 10.

Major (rtd) Sinha, along with Sifat and Shipra, had gone to Cox’s Bazar to make a documentary film on travelling.

Seven police personnel, including Teknaf police station officer-in-charge Pradeep Kumar Das and Inspector Liakat Ali, were suspended in connection with the killing of Sinha. 

Other suspended policemen include Sub-Inspector Nandadulal Rakshit, Assistant Sub-Inspector Liton Miya, Constables Shafanur Rahman, Kamal Hossain, and Abdullah Al Mamun. 

OC Pradeep, Inspector Liakat, and SI Nandadulal Rakshit were placed on a seven-day remand while the rest were sent to jail by a court on Thursday. 

They are all accused in a case filed over Sinha’s murder by his sister with a Cox’s Bazar court.

A Cox’s Bazar court remanded four more cops and three witnesses over the killing of Major (retd) Sinha on Wednesday.
