The JMB men shot dead public prosecutor Haidar Hossain in 2007

The High Court has upheld a verdict of a lower court sentencing five members of Banned militant outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) to death for murdering a Jhalakathi public prosecutor in 2007.

Justice Soumendra Sarker and Justice Shahed Nuruddin passed the order on Monday, reports UNB.

The convicts are – Bellal Hossain, Abu Shahadat Md Tanvir alias Mehedi hasan, Murad Hossain, Sagir Hossain and Amir Hossain. Bellal is on the run.

Advocate SM Shahjahan and Md Kamal stood for the convicts while Deputy Attorney General Bashir Ahmed represented the state.

The JMB men shot dead public prosecutor Haidar Hossain on April 11, 2007.

Earlier, on February 12, 2015, a Jhalakathi court sentenced them to death. Later, the convicts moved the High Court challenging the verdict.
