Azizul and Mintu gang-raped two women in Chuadanga’s Alamdanga before strangling them to death on September 27, 2003

Two death-row convicts in a case filed for killing two women after raping them in Alamdanga upazila of Chuadanga district were executed Monday night.

The execution of the two men —Mintu alias Kalu, 50 and Aziz alias Azizul, 50 of Railaxmipur village in Alamdanga upazila—took place at Jessore Central Jail around 10:45pm, the authorities said.

On September 27, 2003, Azizul and Mintu gang-raped two women at Railaxmipur village before strangling them to death with scarves.

The next day, the victims’ families lodged complaints with Alamdanga police station in Chuadanga.

On July 26, 2007, a Chuadanga Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal judge sentenced Azizul and Mintu to death. The court also fined them Tk2 lakh each.

Following appeals, the verdict was upheld by the High Court on November 11, 2012, and the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on July 26 this year.

Mercy petitions filed by the convicts were also rejected by the president on September 8.

According to the prosecution, Kamela Khatun, 30 and her friend Finge Begum, 32 of Jorgachha village in Alamdanga upazila, were found dead in a field at Railaxmipur village on September 27, 2003.

During the investigation, police discovered that the victims were strangulated to death after rape. The throats of the two women had been slit as well.

A case was filed against four people - Mintu, Azizul, Mahi and Sujon - with Alamdanga police station the following day.

Mahi died during the trial while Sujon was acquitted by the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court.
