A Cox's Bazar court sent four policemen, accused in the murder case of Major (retd) Sinha Md Rashed Khan, to jail after recording their confessional statements.
Senior Judicial Magistrate Tamanna Farah recorded their statements under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure after they were brought in on Wednesday morning, said Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) official Major Mehedi Hasan.
Earlier in the day, suspended Sub-Inspector (SI) Liton Mia, Constables Safanur Karim, Kamal Hossain and Abdullah Al Mamun were produced before the court by a RAB team after their second round of remand, said Mehedi, the deputy commander of RAB 15 in Cox's Bazar.
