A court has sentenced a man to death and two others to life in prison for the murder of Mizan Sikdar Mishor, a worker at a dyeing factory at the Narayanganj Port.
District and Sessions Judge Munshi Mashiar Rahman delivered the verdict in the 2019 case on 3 October 2022, according to state lawyer Moniruzzaman Bulbul.
The death-row convict is 26-year-old Mithu.
Munna, 23, and Shaon, 19, were jailed for life. All three were in court to hear the verdict.
