The three convicts received the capital punishment for bludgeoning a man to death with a hammer and a brick. The Bangladeshis – aged 30, 31 and 33 – were found guilty of killing 42-year-old Samsul Moushed, also a Bangladeshi national.
The death sentences are challengeable by the force of law before the Court of Cassation.
