A Cox’s Bazar court has granted police two days to interrogate three suspects who allegedly took part in the killing of Rohingya leader Mohib Ullah at a refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar’s Ukhiya.

Senior Judicial Magistrate Helal Uddin passed the order after hearing police’s 5-day remand plea on Tuesday afternoon.

During preliminary interrogation, the trio Rashid Prakash Murshid Amin, Md Aanas and Nur Mohammad, reportedly confessed to police about taking part in the killing squad that raided Mohib Ullah office on September 29. 

So far nine Rohingya men have been arrested in this case.

Armed Police Battalion arrested Azizul Haque, Rashid, Aanas, and Nur from a Rohingya camp on Saturday.

Later in the day, Aziz gave his confessional statement and police on Monday sought remand for the three others.

Earlier, another Rohingya man—Elias confessed to his involvement in court on October 10.

On September 29, Mohib Ullah was gunned down by unidentified assailants at a refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar’s Ukhiya.

Mohib Ullah, the chairman of Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights, had come to be known as a "voice for the Rohingya" in the Western media.

The teacher-turned-rights activist was one of the most high-profile advocates for the Rohingyas. He was invited to the White House and to speak to the UN Human Rights Council.

In the case filed over his murder, police had earlier arrested five people, one of whom already has given a confessional statement to a magistrate.
