The trial court had sentenced Aminul to death in 2008, which the High Court also upheld in 2013

The Supreme Court on Monday upheld the death sentence of a man in a case filed over the killing of Dr Nazneen Akther of Labaid Specialised Hospital and her domestic help in 2005.

The six-member virtual bench of the Appellate Division, led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, passed the order after rejecting a petition by the death-row convict.

Advocate ABM Bayezid stood for the petitioner while Deputy Attorney General Biswajit Debnath represented the state.

According to the prosecution, then college student Aminul, also a nephew of Dr Nazneen’s husband Asaruzzaman, stabbed the doctor to death over a dispute on March 7, 2005.

He also killed her domestic help Parul, who had witnessed the murder.

Later, Aminul went into hiding while a case was filed at Dhanmondi police station.

Police, however, arrested Aminul from Faridpur.

In 2008, a Speedy Trial Tribunal had sentenced him to death in the double murder case.

In 2013, the High Court also upheld the death penalty.

Later, Aminul filed an appeal at the Supreme Court challenging the High Court order.
