A Pabna court sentenced nine BNP activists to death and jailed 25 others for life for attacking a train in 1994

BNP has claimed a dictated and cruel verdict was given by a Pabna court sentencing nine of its activists to death and jailing 25 others for life on a fabricated charge of attacking a train carrying then opposition leader Sheikh Hasina in 1994.

Party Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir in a statement on Saturday said the verdict was given after 24 years against BNP leaders and activists “using the court” to hide the growing incidents of repression, grabbing and plundering all over the country, reports UNB.

“The verdict is part of the government’s policy to eliminate BNP using the court. Handing down such a verdict against BNP leaders and activists after 24 years is not only absurd but also part of a far-reaching master plan,” he said.

Fakhrul claimed, the incident of attacking the train carrying Sheikh Hasina in 1994 was fabricated one, adding: “A political issue was created by firing shots and hurling bombs at the train in a planned way by their own party men, and it is known to all. 

 “The Additional District and Sessions Judge gave the verdict at the behest of the government.”   

Earlier in the day, a Pabna court sentenced nine BNP activists to death and jailed 25 others for life for attacking the train in 1994.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Rustom Ali also sentenced 13 others to 10 years in jail.
