The convicts are now in the condemned cells

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday upheld the death penalty for three people in case lodged over the murder of a pregnant woman at the Jahangirnagar University campus in 2000.

The three-death-row-convicts are victim Nasima Akter’s husband Syed Abdullah Al Masud alias Tipu, and his friends Shahidul Islam and Md Khorshed.

A three-member apex court bench headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order, dismissing appeals filed by the convicts after the High Court had upheld the death penalty verdict by a lower court.

The three convicts are now in the condemned cells in jail.

According to case documents, Tipu took his then-seven-month pregnant wife Nasima to the Jahangirnagar University campus on September 27, 2000, along with two of his friends. They took her behind Mawlana Bhashani Hall and stabbed her to death. 

The three killers then removed Nasima’s head from her body and dumped her in a ditch.

A lower court in 2007 sentenced the three to death and the High Court, after holding hearings on jail appeals and death references, upheld the judgement in 2012.
