Mufti Hannan's death warrant reaches Kashimpur Jail
The copies of the death warrants against condemned Harkat-ul Jihad al-Islami Bangladesh (HujiB) leader Mufti Hannan and his cohort Sharif Shahedul Alam arrived at Kashimpur Jail in Gazipur from Sylhet Central Jail on Wednesday night. “The warrants have reached Kashimpur jail,” Inspector General of Prisons (IGP) Brig Gen Syed Iftekhar Uddin confirmed to reporters gathered at the jail at 12:30pm on Thursday. The IG prisons had said on Wednesday that the Jail authorities were ready to execute the convicts and the execution procedure will start once the verdict copies reach both places.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court’s Appellate Division released the full text of its verdict reconfirming death penalties handed to Mufti Hannan and two accomplices for a failed assassination attempt on the then British high commissioner to Bangladesh, Anwar Choudhury. HujiB attacks since 1999 Three people were killed and Anwar sustained leg injuries in the grenade attack carried out during his visit to Shahjalal Shrine in Sylhet city on May 21, 2004. The commissioner reported being hit in the stomach by a bomb, which then fell on the ground near the foot of the district chief and exploded “with a big bang.” Sixty-nine others were also injured. A Sylhet court in December 2008 sentenced the trio to death and two others to life-time imprisonment for their roles in the attack. The High Court upheld the sentences in February 2016. The same month, the death-row convicts appealed to the Appellate Division but to no avail. Their review petitions filed challenging the Appellate Division verdict were also rejected. Hannan was also sentenced to death for the 2001 Ramna Batamul bombing, in which ten people were killed.
