05 April 2018 :
A Chittagong court has sentenced three men to death for raping and murdering a teen seven years ago.
The perpetrators also 'cremated' the body of their victim into ashes in a bid to destroy evidence.
The Chittagong Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal No 3's acting judge Begum Roksana Parvin delivered the verdict on April 4.
The convicts are Sujan Kumar Das, Samir Dey and Jadu Ghose.
Sujan had been arrested and produced in the Tribunal when it delivered the verdict.
The two others are absconding.
Lawyer Nazrul Islam Sentu, who stood for the State in the hearing, told bdnews2.com the court handed the accused the capital punishment as the charges were proved.
They 'cremated' the body of the 18-year-old victim at the South Kattoli crematorium, an area under Paharhtali Police Station’s jurisdiction, he said.
The charred body was found in 2011, he added.
