Bachchu Miah was shot to death at Keraniganj’s Jinjira on June 18, 2006

A Dhaka court on Sunday awarded death penalty to three people and life imprisonment to seven others for killing a businessman in Keraniganj in 2006.

The death-row convicts are Maruf Hossain, 24, Titu, 21, and Liton, 20.

Those sentenced to life in jail are Amzad Hossain Liton, 21, Sabbir, 22, Abdul Goni, 22, Wasim Kasai, 25, Samrat, 30, Nantu, 20, Nabab, 31.

Of them, Titu, Liton, Samrat and Nabab were present in the dock when the verdict was delivered.

According to the prosecution, the convicts shot Bachchu Miah to death at Keraniganj’s Jinjira on June 18, 2006 over an extortion of Tk20 lakh.

Bachchu’s brother Matiur Rahman had filed the murder case against 11 people afterwards.
