A local court has sentenced 17 accused to seven years in jail, for their involvement in the murder of Khulna schoolboy Fahmid Tanvir Razin in 2018.

Judge A Salam Khan of the Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal passed the verdict on Monday.

They are members of a teen gang named TPC Group.

According to the case statement, Rajin used to protest when some members of the teen gang stalked and harassed one of his female friends. This created enmity between Razin and the stalkers. 

On January 20, 2018, the teen gang members called Razin to Khulna Public College ground and started assaulting him. At one point, they stabbed Razin in the chest.

Razin died due to excessive bleeding from his wound.

The victim’s father Jahangir Alam lodged a case against 10 people, naming six people of the gang, with Khalishpur police station.
