The court has sentenced eight people to life imprisonment for the murder of three policemen in Pabna’s Bera. On the other hand, the three accused have been acquitted due to lack of evidence. 

Judge of the Rapid Tribunal of Rajshahi Anup Kumar declared the verdict on Wednesday.

Advocate Entajul Haque Babu, public prosecutor (PP) of Rajshahi Speedy Trial Tribunal said, “There were 15 accused in the case. Four of the accused were killed in the crossfire.”  

“Of the remaining 11 accused, eight have been given life imprisonment and as the charges have not been proved, the three accused have been acquitted. Two accused are still absconding,” he added. 

Earlier, on July 20, 2010, SI Kafil Uddin, Nayek Wahed Ali and constable Shafiqul Islam were shot dead in the camp of Bera’s Dhalachar Police Outpost.
