3 more RAB men arrested in N’ganj murder case


Police have arrested three more personnel of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) over the murder of seven at Narayanganj and remanded them for questioning.
Assistant Sub-inspectors Abul Kalam Azad, Bazlur Rahman and Havilder Md Nasiruddin were arrested on Monday night, said the district Detective Branch OC Mamunur Rashid Mandal, the case’s investigating officer.“They were arrested after their names came up in our interrogation of the other RAB members we arrested over the murders.”
Their arrests take the number of RAB personnel held over the murders to 14. Ten among them have given confessional testimonies to court.
Seven, including Narayanganj City Councillor Nazrul Islam and senior lawyer Chandan Kumar Sarkar, were abducted from the city on Apr 27. Their bodies were found floating on the Shitalakkhya River a few days later.
Former Lt Col Tarek Sayeed, then the RAB-11 commander, was removed along with former Maj Arif Hossain and former Lt Commander MM Rana even before the bodies were found.
The former RAB trio was forced to retire and arrested. – bdnews24.com
