Four members of the police have been produced to the court for the confessional statements in the murder case of retired Major Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan. At the end of the second remand, they were brought to the court to give a confessional statement under section 164.

A team of RAB produced the four policemen in the court of Cox's Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Tamanna Farah on Wednesday morning.

Their confessional statements began to be taken from noon in the private room of the court. Earlier in the morning, they were taken to Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital for a health check-up.

The four accused are ASI Liton Mia, Constable Safanur Karim, Kamal Hossain and Abdullah Al Mamun.

RAB-15 Cox's Bazar Deputy Commander Major Mehedi Hasan said the court had granted a four-day remand in the second phase on August 24 for further questioning of four policemen in the Sinha murder case. On September 8, the RAB started questioning them for their second remand following a court order. They were brought to court on Wednesday after a four-day remand after they agreed to make a confessional statement.

Earlier in the case, dismissed OC Pradeep, Inspector Liaquat and SI Nandadulal Rakshit were remanded for questioning. Among them, Pradeep was remanded for 15 days in four phases and Liaquat and Nandadulal Rakshit for 14 days in three phases. Although Liaquat and Nandadulal gave confessional statements, Pradeep did not agree. They are all in jail now. Eight people, including three members of the APBN, have so far made confessional statements.

Retired Major Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan was shot dead by police at the Shamlapur check post in Teknaf on the night of July 31.
