A Dhaka court on Tuesday sent sacked captain Abdul Majed, one of five absconding death-row convicts for killing the country’s founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, to the Dhaka Central Jail.
Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate AM Zulfikar Hayat passed the order after Majed was produced before the court amid tight security.
No lawyer appeared to defend him when police’s sub-inspector Anisur Rahman prayed for detaining him in the jail until he was showed arrested in the Bangabandhu Murder Case by the trial court.
Assistant public prosecutor Hemayetuddin Hiron told reporters that he was self-claimed murder of Bangabandhu.
‘He was hiding in Kolkata for 22-23-year,’ Mazed told the court during the hearing.
Law minister Anisul Huq on Tuesday said that sacked captain Abdul Majed, an absconding death row convict for killing the country’s founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, was arrested in Dhaka.
The counter terrorism and transnational crime unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police arrested Majed in the capital’s Mirpur.
Anisul, the chairman of the task force to find out all six absconding killers, confirmed New Age about his arrest but did not disclose where he was before his arrest.
Home minister Asaduzzaman Khan and the police headquarters official also confirmed the news.
Rest of the absconding killers are Khandaker Abdur Rashid, Shariful Haque Dalim, Noor Chowdhury, Rashed Chowdhury and Moslehuddin Khan.
