A speedy trial court in Rajshahi acquitted 11 Purba Banglar Communist Party activists of the charge of killing Professor Abdul Wahed of Baghmara on Thursday.

The speedy trial court judge, ATM Mesbauddoulah, acquitted Abdur Razzak alias Art Babu, Ahsraf alias Razu, Asad alias Kamal, Mishon Kumar, Ashraful Islam alias Lal, Jahangir alias Jamal, Ataur alias Ata alias Mobarak, Ferdous alias Tamal, Badsha alias Badal, Masud, and Ratan alias Titas.

The court dropped the name of Akkas alias Titu and Fazle alias Tushar alias Fazlur Rahman off the charge sheet as they were earlier killed in ‘crossfire’ with the Rapid Action Battalion.

According to the prosecution, the accused slit the throat of BNP leader Abdul Wahad and shot him dead at a weekly market at Taherpur near the Taherpur police outpost of Baghmara on February 7, 2003. After the incident, local people set fire to the police outpost as they did not do anything during the killing.

The victim’s daughter Suraiya Akhter Mili filed a murder case with the Baghmara police on the day. Former Baghmara police officer-in-charge Monirul Islam filed the charge sheet against 13 PBCP activists on July 7, 2007. Six of the accused were on the dock when the judgement was pronounced.
