Update : 08 Apr 2014, 09:41 AM

The High Court has cancelled the bail of Md Shamsuzzaman Arif alias Bakku, the prime accused in the case of murdering Samiul Ajim Wafi, a child, in 2010.  

The bench of Justice Nizamul Huq and Justice Zahangir Hossain has passed the order on Tuesday.

Deputy Attorney General Amit Talukder said on February 16 the bench granted bail to Bakku and issued a rule asking as to why Bakku should not be granted permanent bail. The court on Tuesday cancelled his bail after discharging the rule, he said.

According to the case statement, Samiul’s mother Humaira Akter Ayesha and her lover Bakku murdered Samiul as he witnessed them being intimate. His body was recovered from near his house in the capital’s Adabar on June 24, 2010.

On February 1, 2011, a Dhaka Court framed a charge against the duo and the trial started after seven days with the testimony of KR Azam, father of the child and the informant of the case. So far, nine prosecution witnesses have given depositions in the case.

Azam recently told the Dhaka Tribune that he received death threats from Bakku after the accused was freed from the jail. The accused threatened the victim’s father not to bring any more witnesses at the court against him.
