Nur Hossain sent to jail without prayer for remand14 November, 2015 03:22
"We want Nur Hossain to hang," "We want his remand" -- were two of the slogans that reverberated through the Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court as the prime accused in the sensational seven-murder case in Narayanganj was produced there around 2:35pm amid tight security.
When microbus carrying Nur Hossain stopped before a Narayanganj court yesterday afternoon Some people brandished their "sandals" at Nur Hossain, who was smirking.
On Thursday night,
he was brought back from India.
A former local Awami League leader, Hossain fled to the country shortly after the abduction and murder of seven people -- Narayanganj City Corporation ward councillor Nazrul Islam, his driver and three associates, and senior lawyer Chandan Sarkar and his driver, on April 27 last year.
The seven were abducted allegedly by some Rapid Action Battalion men from Dhaka-Narayanganj Link Road.
Yesterday, however, the slogans outside the court intensified on hearing that police did not seek to take him on remand and that the Chief Judicial Magistrate Shahidul Islam sent him to jail over the sensational murder case.
