A court on Wednesday has granted five days remand to Constable Rubel Sharma, one of the main aide of ousted OC Pradeep Kumar Das, the main accused in the murder case of retired Major Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan.

Judge Tamanna Farah of Cox’s Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Court No. 4 (Teknaf) granted his remand in the afternoon.

Rubel Sharma was granted a five-day remand in the second phase following an eight-day remand petition by the investigating officer of the case.

Confirming the matter, Khairul Islam, an assistant police officer of RAB-15, who is investigating the Sinha murder case, said: “Rubel Sharma had already been remanded for seven days. A lot of important information about the Sinha murder case was obtained from him in remand, however, he needs further remand for more information. As a result, another 8-days remand was appealed. The court granted him 5-day remand in the 2nd phase.” 

According to sources, Rubel Sharma was the last of the 14 accused in the Sinha murder case. He was arrested on September 14 and sent to jail by the court.

On September 30, Senior Judicial Magistrate Court No. 4 (Teknaf) Judge Tamanna Farah granted Rubel Sharma a 7-day remand in response to investigating officer Khairul Islam’s 10-day remand petition. He was remanded in custody on October 2.  

It is to be noted that Retired Major Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan was shot dead by police at the Baharchhara Shamlapur check post in Teknaf on the night of July 31. Sharmin Shahriar Ferdous, sister of the deceased, filed a case in the incident. Earlier, 14 people including Pradeep Kumar Das were arrested in the case. The number of accused including Rubel Sharma stands at 14.
