With the latest developments, so far, a total of seven murder cases have been filed against the Pradeep

At least two more murder cases have been filed against 53 people with the Cox’s Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Court, including the recently suspended OC of Teknaf police station, Pradeep Kumar Das.

The cases were filed on Wednesday by Shahena Akter, whose husband Musa Akbar - and Hafez Ahmed, whose younger brother Shahab Uddin - had been killed in separate reported gunfights in February and April last year, respectively.

In one case, Mashiur Rahman, in-charge of Howaikong police station, has been made the prime accused whereas Pradeep has been named as the second accused.

While in the other case, Teknaf police station Sub-Inspector (SI) Deepak Biswas has been made the prime accused and the former OC of the same police station has been named as the third accused. 

With the latest developments, so far, a total of seven murder cases have been filed against Pradeep.

Cox's Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Court 3 Judge Md Helal Uddin, after the hearings, directed Teknaf police station to look for any other cases lodged over the incidents.

Lawyers Reduan Ali, representing Shahena, and Shah Alam, representing Hafez Ahmed, confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

The extrajudicial killings happening under the jurisdiction of Pradeep Kumar Das recently gained nationwide attention after Major (retd) Sinha was shot dead at a police check-post on Marine Drive Road between Cox’s Bazar and Teknaf on the night of July 31.

On August 5, Sinha’s sister, Sharmin Shahriar Ferdous, filed a case with the Senior Judicial Magistrate Court of Teknaf against nine policemen, including Pradeep and Liakat.

On August 6, seven of the accused surrendered to court which sent them to jail after scrapping their bail pleas.

Pradeep Kumar Das, Inspector Liakat Ali, and Nanda Dulal were taken into RAB custody for questioning on August 18.
