Investigators on Thursday submitted two charge sheets against Suprabhat Paribahan bus owner and five others in connection with two cases — one filed over the killing of university student Abrar Ahmed Chowdhury and another over reported attempt to murder of college girl Synthia Islam Mukta.
Investigation officer of the cases DB inspector Kazi Shairiful Islam submitted the charge sheets to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court of Dhaka.
He brought charges against Suprabhat Paribahan bus owner Nani Gopal Sarker, driver Mohammad Sirajul Islam, conductor Yasin Arafat, driver’s assistant Mohammad Ibrahim, route president Alauddin and director Ashrafuddin.
Among them, the investigator pressed charges against Yasin, Nani Gopal, Alauddin and Ashrafuddin in the case of killing Abrar while all the six were charge-sheeted in the attempt to murder of Synthia, Dhaka metropolitan crime information and prosecution deputy police commissioner Mohammad Anisur Rahman told New Age.
The investigation officer, however, did not find involvement of driver Sirajul and his assistant Ibrahim in the killing Abrar.
Driver Sirajul Islam, his assistant Ibrahim Hossain, conductor Yeasir Arafat and bus owner Nani Gopal are now in jail.
They have already confessed to their offences under section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
