Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has a much better understanding now of the series of events that surround the murder case of major (retd) Sinha Md Rashed Khan.

“RAB has successfully gathered vital information regarding the case, including witness statements, physical and digital evidence, and finally sensational details divulged by the accused and suspects during their interrogation,” RAB's Legal and Media Wing director Lt Col Ashique Billah. 

The RAB official disclosed these matters regarding the case investigation before journalists at the office of RAB-15 in Cox's Bazar at around 9:30pm on Wednesday night. 

Earlier, RAB took seven people, including four accused policemen and three other suspects, into their custody for interrogation in connection to the murder case of Major (retd) Sinha Md Rashed Khan.

“RAB has finished its initial interrogation and the seven will be produced before the court on Thursday. If the investigation officer deems it necessary to interrogate them again, another remand prayer will be submitted to the court,” said Lt Col Ashique Billah.

Replying to a question from a correspondent, he said Ramu police has been ordered by a court to hand 29 items including laptops, hard disks and pen drives belonging to major Sinha, Shipra and Sifat seized from Nilima Resort over to RAB for investigation purposes.

Ashique Billah also said, "RAB is unable to disclose everything to the media for the sake of investigation. A report will be submitted to the court after finding out the reasons behind the killing of major Sinha," he said.

Major (retd.) Sinha was shot dead at Shamlapur check post on the night of July 31 on his way back to Nilima Resort in Himchhari area of Cox's Bazar on Marine Drive after filming a video on Marishbunia hill in Teknaf. 

At that time, the police arrested Sifat who was with Sinha and sent him to jail. Shipra was later apprehended from the resort. Both are currently out on bail. 

On Tuesday, Cox's Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Court Judge Tamanna Farah granted a seven-day remand for three members of Armed Police Battalion (APBn), all of whom were on-duty at Shamlapur Police Investigation Centre on the night of July 31.

The same day, three top accused in the case—suspended officer-in-charge of Teknaf Police Station Pradeep Kumar Das, inspector Liakat Ali and sub-inspector Nanda Dulal Rakshit—were taken into RAB custody for interrogation.
