A local court today sentenced a father and his son to death for killing Abul Basharat for protesting against sexual harassment of his daughter in village Jigabari of Kawnia upazila in the district about four years ago.  

Judge Tariq Hossain of Rangpur Additional District and Sessions Judge's Court- 2 pronounced the verdict in presence of convicts father Nur Amin and his son Mahbur Islam in the courtroom this afternoon.  

The convicts were later sent to Rangpur Central Jail in a prison van.  

Prosecution says Mahbur Islam of Biswanathpur, a neighboring village, used to harass the daughter of Abul Basharat of Jigabari village in various ways for a long time.  

When Abul Basharat came to know about the matter, he several times forbade Mahbur Islam to harass her daughter anymore and brought the matter into the notice of his father Nur Amin.  

But, Nur Amin instead threatened Basharat in various ways and there were several quarrels between them.  

Later, on November 25, 2018, Mahbur Islam and his father Nur Amin found Abul Basharat alone in front of them and launched a surprise attack on him with the help of others.  

Basharat was stabbed with sharp weapons and seriously injured.  

Later, locals rescued Abul Basharat to Rangpur Medical College Hospital where he died while undergoing treatment there on the night of the incident.  

Morzina Begum, wife of the deceased Abul Basharat, filed a murder case with Kawnia Police Station accusing seven people including Nur Amin and his son Mahbur Islam.  

After investigation, the police filed a charge sheet against four accused.  

After testifying 20 witnesses in the case, the court found Nur Amin and his son Mahbur Islam guilty beyond any doubt and sentenced them to death.

The court also fined them Taka 10,000 each.  

Two other accused Maidul and Mahfuzar Rahman were acquitted as the charges brought against them were not proved during the hearing of the case.
