A Dhaka court on 9 October 2019 sentenced three men to death for the murder of an Ansar member in Dhaka 17 years ago.
Dhaka's Speedy Trial Tribunal-1 Judge Abu Zafar Md Kamruzzaman passed the verdict.
The convicts are 'Pappu' alias Antu, Md Toriqul Rahman alias Uzzal and Md Sukkur Ali alias Shohel, who are all absconding.
Among them, Sukkur has also been sentenced to life in prison and fined TK 10,000 in another case over the attempted murder of a policeman during the incident.
