Liakat Ali, a prime accused in Major (retd) Sinha Md Rashed Khan murder case, was taken to the district jail after his four-hour-long confessional statement

Suspended sub-inspector Liakat Ali has given a confessional statement under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure over the murder of Major (retd) Sinha Md Rashed Khan after being produced in a court in Cox’s Bazar.

Liakat Ali, a prime accused in Major (retd) Sinha Md Rashed Khan murder case, was taken to the district jail after his four-hour-long confession, RAB sources confirmed.

Liakat was brought to the Cox's Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Court for recording of the statement around 12pm on Sunday, a day after the commencement of a 3-day remand confirmed sources from the Rapid Action Battalion, the agency in-charge of investigating the Sinha murder case.

“Cox’s Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Tamanna Farah recorded his statement from 12pm to 4:30 pm,” said Khairul Islam, senior associate superintendent of police.

“Though Liakat has confessed to his crimes in remand, the details of his confessional statement before the court are unknown to us,'' added Khairul, the investigation officer of the case.

Earlier on Friday, the same court granted remand for the third time for suspended OC Pradeep Kumar Das, Liakat and ASI Nanda Dulal Raxit, for continuing interrogations.

On the night of July 31, Maj Sinha was shot dead by Liakat near a police check-post in Shamlapur under Baharchhara union of Cox’s Bazar’s Teknaf.

After the incident, police filed two cases with Teknaf police station and one with Ramu police station. RAB took 13 accused persons of these cases into custody including seven police members and three members of Armed Police Battalion (APBn) until now.

The accused APBn members were on-duty at the check-post when Sinha was murdered. The court recorded their confessional statements separately on Wednesday and Thursday, and afterwards sent them to jail.

On August 5, Sinha's elder sister Sharmin Shahriar Ferdous filed a case at the judicial magistrate's court in connection with the murder where 15 were named as accused. All except two of the accused in the case have been arrested until now.

On Friday, a panel of lawyers led by Advocate Ahsanul Haque Hena appeared in court from Chittagong seeking bail for the three key accused and cancellation of their remand.

After a lengthy hearing, the Senior Judicial Magistrate Court Judge Tamanna Farah denied bail and granted remand for each for a further three days.
