Two death-row convicts will be executed on Monday night in connection with a case filed for killing two women after raping them in Alamdanga upazila of Chuadanga district.

Azizul and Mintu gang-raped two women at Railaxmipur village in Alamdanga upazila and strangled them to death with scarfs.

On September 28, 2003, the family of the two victims lodged complaints with Alamdanga police station in Chuadanga.

On July 26, 2007, Chuadanga Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal Judge sentenced Azizul and Mintu to death.

On November 11, 2012, the High Court upheld the lower court verdict. Besides, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court also upheld the lower court verdict on July 26, this year.

The two convicts also filed mercy petitions before the President which were also rejected.

The jail authorities received a letter regarding it on September 8.

According to the prosecution, Kamela Khatun, 30 and her friend Finge Begum, 32 of Jorgachha village in Alamdanga upazila, were found dead in a field at Railaxmipur village on September 27, 2003.

During the investigation, police unearthed that the victims were strangulated to death after rape. Later, the convicts also slit the throat of the two women to ensure their deaths.

A case was filed against four people—Mintu, Azizul, Mahi and Sujon-- at Alamdanga police station on the following day.

During the trial, Mahi, an accused of the case, died while Sujon was acquitted by the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court and he walked out from jail on July 20.
