Two people have been sentenced to death for killing a seven-year-old child, Baitul, in Chapainawabganj.

The court also fined the convicts Tk50,000 each, in default of which they would have to spend six more months in jail.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Rabiul Islam gave the verdict in the absence of the accused on Thursday.

The convicts are Rahim, 46, and Faruk Hossain, 38, sons of Manjur Hossain from Chakpara village under Charbagdanga union of Chapainawabganj Sadar upazila.

Additional Public Prosecutor Anjuman Ara said: “According to the case statement, on the night January 19, 2010, following a dispute over land and money, the convicts Rahim and Faruq attacked their cousin Nazrul Islam’s family with crude bombs, leaving many of them injured.

“Nazrul’s nephew Baitul was severely injured in the attack and was rushed to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital where he died while undergoing treatment.”

On January 20, 2010, Nazrul Islam then filed a case accusing Rahim and Faruq.

Later, the investigating officer of the case SI Ataur Rahman filed a charge sheet against the accused on June 8 of the same year.

Following the evidence, the court convicted the duo and sentenced them. However, the accused in the case are absconding.

Additional government counsel Mizanur Rahman represented the state in the case and Sadrul Amin represented the accused.
