A court has sentenced three people to death in a case filed for killing a child Abdur Rahman Araf by throwing him in a water tank at Bakalia in Chattogram city. 

Judge Mohammad Jashim Uddin of Chattogram Additional Metropolitan Session Judge Court-3 announced the verdict on Wednesday afternoon. Court APP Prabir Kumar Bhattacharya confirmed the information.

The death convicts are- the mastermind of the murder Md Farid, the doorman Md Hasan and his mother Nazma Begum. The accused were present in the court today.

Earlier, the court was scheduled to pronounce its verdict on March 30 in the first phase and April 26 in the second phase but later deferred to May 16. 

On June 8, 2020, police recovered the body of child Araf from the water tank of Nurul Alam Miah's house's roof on Mansur Ali Road in Miakhan Nagar under Bakalia Police Station. Araf was the son of Abdul Qayyum, the tenant of the house.

Farid had a previous dispute with Nurul Alam Miah, councilor of South Bakalia Ward No 19, the owner of the house. Due to that dispute, Farid chose Nazma Begum to trap Nurul Alam Mia. He offered money to her to kill Araf. 

Araf was playing on the ground floor of the house in the afternoon on that day of the incident. Nazma's son Hasan was the doorman of the house. After taking the key from Hasan, Nazma Begum threw Araf into the water tank on the terrace, where he drowned.
