RU Prof Rezaul murder case verdict on Tuesday
The verdict of Rajshahi University (RU) teacher Prof AFM Rezaul Karim Siddique’s killing case is set to be delivered on Tuesday. On April 11, the judge of Rajshahi Speedy Trial Tribunal, Shirin Kabita Akhter, had fixed May 8 to pronounce the judgment upon completion of arguments by prosecution and defence both, said Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) Entazul Haque Babu. During the trial, the court had recorded the testimonies of 32 witnesses. Prof Rezaul, 58, of RU’s English Department, was murdered in the city’s Shalbagan area while he was waiting for a university bus on April 23, 2016. According to police, he was a victim of targeted killings orchestrated across the country by militants. Rezaul’s son Sourov Hossain later filed the murder case at Boalia police station. SPP Babu said police had submitted a charge sheet against eight members of banned militant outfit Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) November 6, 2016, more than six months after the killing. Among them, Khairul Islam Payal alias Badhan was killed during the raid on Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka on July 1 that year. Two other militants – Nazrul Islam alias Bike Hasan and Tareque Hasan Milu alias Osman – were also killed in reported gunfights with police in Rajshahi and Bogra, respectively. The other accused are: Maskawat Hassan alias Abdullah alias Sakib of Bogra’s Shibgonj; Rahmat Ullah of Nilphamari’s Mianpara; Abdus Sattar and his son Ripon Ali of Rajshahi; and Shariful Islam, a RU English Department student. Prof Rezaul’s family members and the university’s teachers, students and employees have staged demonstrations on the campus demanding justice.
