Update : 04 Sep 2015, 02:49 PM

Saudi Arabian authorities have agreed to deport Kamrul Islam, an accused in the murder of 13-year-old boy Samiul Alam Rajon.

State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam made the disclosure through a post on his official Facebook account on Thursday night.

The Facebbok post read: “Saudi Royal court approved deportation of Quamrul [Kamrul Islam]. They have already issued letter to Interpol.”

The junior minister also wrote that the entire process should not take more than two weeks.

On July 8, Rajon was beaten to death in Sylhet’s Kumargaon by some men who falsely accused him of stealing a rickshaw van.

One of the killers recorded the incident on mobile phone and later uploaded on Facebook.

The video soon spread on social media platforms, triggering massive outrage among the public.

The 28-minute video shows the victim tied to a pole in front of a workshop in the still-closed Sultan Ali Market, beside the Dhaka-Sunamganj road.

Later, a case was filed in this connection against 13 people, including Kamrul, who is a Saudi immigrant.

Kamrul was detained by Bangladeshis in Saudi Arabia and handed over to the police. A district court has already accepted charges against the accused and issued arrest warrants against the fugitive killers.
