A Chapainawabganj court sentenced a member of the banned militant outfit Hizb ut-Tahrir to 10 years in prison.

The convicted Omar Faruq, 33, was also slapped a fine of Tk50,000. Inability to pay the fine will result in an additional six months in jail, read the court order.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Shawkat Ali of Special Tribunal 2 gave the verdict with the convicted Omar Faruq in court, on Wednesday afternoon. 

Public Prosecutor Anjuman Ara, quoting the case statement, said: “On June 13, 2016, police acting on a tip-off, managed to arrest Omar Faruq, during a secret meeting of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Ghorapakhia village of  Sadar upazila.

“Police also seized from his possession, a foreign made pistol, a magazine, a bullet, 500 grams of gunpowder, and a number of Jihadi books.”

Following the June 2016 incident, Chapainawabganj Sadar Model police station Sub-Inspector Kamrul Islam filed a case against four people in this connection.

On September 19, 2016, Sub-Inspector Mahbubur Rahman, the case investigating officer,  submitted the charge sheet for the case.

After a lengthy trial of recording testimonies and cross-examining evidences, the judge gave the verdict and granted bail to the other three accused, Mehedi Hasan, Monirul Islam, and Tohrul Islam Babu.
