Earlier, on Sunday, the High Court ordered the government to take necessary steps for arresting the three Rab officials — Rab-11 commanding officer Lt Col Tareque Sayeed Mohammad, Major Arif Hossain and Lieutenant Commander Masud Rana.
They were removed from their services following the allegation that they killed Narayanganj panel mayor Nazrul Islam, his three associates, driver, senior lawyer Chandan Kumar Sarker and his driver in exchange for Tk 6 crore.
Narayanganj ward-4 Councillor Nur Hossain, the prime accused in the seven-murder case, reportedly bribed the Rab men to kill Nazrul. About Nur Hossain, the state minister said they will arrest him at any cost. “Our process to arrest Nur Hossain is on. We’ll arrest him at any cost.”
