Tuesday, 10 August 2010

 speedy trial court has sentenced two members of Jamaat-ul-Mujahedeen Bangladesh (JMB), a banned Islamist outfit, to 20-years imprisonment on charges of possession of explosives.

The accused were also fined Tk 25,000 for their crime.

In addition to the two JMB leaders – Salahuddin alias Salehin, and Asaduzzaman Panir - Fahima Akhter alias Farzana, wife of the hanged JMB leader Siddiqul Islam alias Bangla Bhai, was also meted out a similar punishment as an accomplice to the crime.

Speedy trial tribunal judge Md Rezaul Islam gave the order.

The case statement says that, on Dec 18, 2005, on information from JMB military branch commander Ataur Rahman Sani (since then hanged), a team of RAB-9 raided the residence of a certain Khorshed Uddin of Akura, Mymensingh.

RAB personnel arrested Panir from the rented house and also recovered a huge amount of explosives.

RAB-9 official Enayet Hossain filed a case with the Mymensingh Kotwali police under the explosives act. Police sub-inspector Mohammad Ali Khandaker, on June 16, 2006, submitted the charge sheet.

Hanged JMB leaders Shayekh Abdur Rahman, Bangla Bhai and Ataur Rahman Sani were also made the defendants in the case. They were, however, later dropped from the charge sheet after their death sentences were carried out.
