Two men were arrested for the alleged murder where one confessed to killing the man
A man who was allegedly murdered in 2019 has returned alive.
The matter came to the High Court’s knowledge on Tuesday during the hearing of a bail petition submitted by one of the accused in a murder case filed.
The court was informed that a man had returned alive, who was said to be murdered and burned in 2019, according to a confessional statement given by one of the accused in the murder case.
After the hearing, the court summoned the investigation officer (IO) of the case from Halisahar police station in Chittagong to appear before it with the case documents on October 22.
The High Court bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mustafizur Rahman came up with the order.
The court also ordered both the accused and so called murdered “Dilip” to appear before the court on that day.
Deputy Attorney General Sarwar Hossain Bappy informed the bench that: “On April 21, 2019, one unidentified man’s body was recovered from Halisahar, Chittagong.
“Later police filed a murder case against some unknown men in which Durjoy Acharja and Jibon Chakrabarty were arrested.
“Jibon even gave a confessional statement where he confessed to murdering Dilip by strangling him with a towel and later burning the body with the help of Durjoy.”
“However, after more than a year, the so called murdered Dilip was produced before a lower court on August 13, this year by the investigation officer,” Sarwar added.
Meanwhile, the accused Durjoy filed a bail petition with the lower court on June 30, which got rejected.
Later he came to the High Court with the petition.
