Sinha Murder: Pradeep, Liaqat transferred to Ctg Central Jail
The death row convicts in Maj (retd) Sinha murder case Pradeep Kumar Das and Liaqat Ali were transferred to Chattogram Central Jail from Cox's Bazar jail yesterday.
Jailer Dewan Md Tariqul Islam told The Daily Star that following the higher authorities' order, they were taken to the condemned cell at Chattogram jail around 1:30pm. "They will be kept here until further notice," he added.
A Cox's Bazar court on January 31 sentenced Liaqat Ali, inspector of Baharchhara Investigation Centre; and Pradeep Kumar Das, suspended officer-in-charge of Teknaf Police Station, to death and six others to life term imprisonment in the murder case. The court also acquitted seven others from the charges.
A case filed by ACC against Pradeep and his wife Chumki is also under trial at a Chattogram court. Chumki is on the run.
