A Dhaka court has handed death penalty to 15 people for their roles in the murder of Nazrul Islam, a clothing trader in Dohar in a conflict over land a decade ago.
Dhaka First Additional District and Sessions Judge Pradeep Kumar Roy announced the verdict on Wednesday as he sentenced two others to life in prison, reports bdnews24.com.
On Apr 3, 2008, the perpetrators killed Nazrul Islam at Narisha West Char beside the Buriganga Bridge over a land dispute, State Counsel Advocate Kazi Shahanara Yasmin said.
Nazrul’s uncle Nazimuddin Ahmed filed a case with Dohar Police Station the same day.
