Detective Branch of police has submitted charge sheet against nine persons in the case filed over the murder of former tax commissioner Abu Taher.
The accused are: mastermind Nasir, Rasel, Amir, Sohel, Rustom, housemaids Selina and Nur Jahan, Masud and Nur Alam.
Senior Assistant Commissioner of DB Iqbal Hossain told the Dhaka Tribune that they submitted the charge sheet on Wednesday.
He said 10 persons, divided into three groups, executed the murder plan.
"Housemaids Selina and Nur Jahan gave information to others about the scenario of the house while Sujon, Masud and Nur Alam were keeping watch on the road in front of Taher's house on March 2 last year.
"Five others entered the flat and tied up Abu Taher's hands and legs and then suffocated him to death. They also cut the tendons of Taher’s hands and legs."
Later neighbours rushed him to the hospital where Taher succumbed to his injuries.
