A Cox’s Bazar court on Thursday has placed three people, including Officer-in-Charge of Teknaf Police Station Pradeep Kumar Das and Inspector Liakat, on a seven-day remand in connection with the killing of Major (retd) Army officer Major Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan.
Md Helal Uddin, judicial magistrate of Cox’s Bazar, passed the order when members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) produced the accused before his court with remand plea.
Plaintiff’s lawyer Md Mustafa said the court put the three on a seven-day remand while the rest will be interrogated at the jail gate.
All nine accused were produced before the court around 5 pm and Judge Md Helal initially ordered to imprison them.
Later, the court heard a remand plea by Rab and granted investigators seven days to interrogate the suspects.
Major (retd) Sinha was killed in police firing at Baharchhara police check-post on July 31.
