Staff Reporter :
RAB is looking into the phone call records between the former Teknaf Police Station OC Pradeep and Cox's Bazar SP Masud Hossain over the murder of retired Major Sinha Mohammad Rashed. If it is necessary, the SP will also be interrogated.
This information was given by Lt. Col. Ashiq Billah, Director of Law and Media Wing of RAB at a press conference held at RAB Media Center on Saturday afternoon.
The elite force "Rapid Action Battalion (RAB)-15" has already started inquiring into the Bangladesh Army's retired Major Sinha killing case to unearth the facts and motive.
As continuity, an investigation team of RAB-15 questioned four of the seven accused at Cox's Bazar Jail gate on Saturday afternoon, Ashiq Billah added.
Meanwhile, three prime accused suspended Baharchhara Police Outpost inspector Liakat Ali, Teknaf Police Station OC Pradeep Kumar Das and sub-inspector Nanda Dulal Rakshit will be taken into the RAB custody on Sunday for questioning, RAB sources said. Cox's Bazar RAB-15 Deputy Commander Major Mehedi Hasan confirmed the news to the media and said that they would try to find out the real clues behind the incident through intensive inquiring for the sake of a fair and impartial investigation into the killing.
Cox's Bazar District Jail super Mokammel Hossain said they received significant documents regarding the remand for seven accused from Cox's Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate court at about 1:30pm on Saturday. So, the RAB-15 members started questioning the four accused at the jail gate. The three accused who were placed on a seven-day remand would be sent into the RAB custody on Sunday.
On July 31 night, Bangladesh Army's Major (Retd) Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan was killed in police firing during the searching at Baharchhara Police Checkpost.
On August 5, slain Sinha's sister Sharmin Shahria Ferdous filed a murder case against nine policemen including Inspector Liakat Ali and OC Pradeep Kumar Das with the Cox's Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Court.
