Five JMB men sentenced to 15 years of prison in Jamalpur Dhaka Tribune

A Jamalpur court has sentenced five active members of the banned militant outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) to 15 years in prison.

District and Sessions Judge Mohammad Zahirul Kabir passed the order on Wednesday.

They were also slapped with a Tk15,000 fine each and would have to be in jail for 18 more months if they failed to pay it.

The convicts are: Kari Saidur Rahman, 40, Akkas Ali, 38, Saidul Miah, 48, Md Rokonuzzaman, 31, and Azizul Haque, 50. All the militants, except Md Rokonuzzaman who is currently on the run, were present during the pronouncement of the verdict.

Additional PP Advocate Mohammad Khwaja Alam confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

According to case details, RAB 9 arrested the five militants on August 15, 2009, while they were preparing to carry out sabotage at Azizul Haque's house in Bandho Chithlia village of Jamalpur Sadar upazila.

Iron pipes, glass bottles and a large number of jihadi books were recovered at that time.

Later, RAB DAD M Jahangir Alam filed a case against them. They were sentenced to 15 years’ imprisonment following the testimony of nine people in the case.

The case was heard on September 13 of the same year after the charge sheet was filed on August 27, 2009.

Then on March 3, 2013, the case was sent to the Special Judge’s Court.
