Suspended Teknaf police station OC Pradeep then demanded Tk50 lakh as a bribe from the family of those deceased.

Later the same day, the three were killed in a “gunfight” by Pradeep after the family refused to provide the money.

The extrajudicial killings happening under the jurisdiction of Pradeep Kumar Das recently gained nationwide attention after Major (retd) Sinha was shot dead at a police check post on Marine Drive Road between Cox’s Bazar and Teknaf on the night of July 31.

On August 5, Sinha’s sister Sharmin Shahriar Ferdous filed a case with the Senior Judicial Magistrate Court of Teknaf against nine policemen, including Pradeep and Liakat.

On August 6, seven of the accused surrendered in court, which sent them to jail after scrapping their bail pleas.

Pradeep Kumar Das, inspector Liakat Ali, and Nanda Dulal were taken into RAB custody for questioning on August 18.
