A Naogaon court on Monday sentenced nine people to death and another one to imprisonment unto death in a triple murder case in 2014.
Naogaon Additional District and Session Judge court-2, Hasan Mahmudul Islam handed down the judgment.
The condemned convicts are—Saidul Isalm, Aijul Haque, Helal Hossain, Jalal Hossain, Belal Hossain, Zayed Ali, Abul Hossain, Mostafa and Shohag Ali of Badalgachi upazila. Of them, Saidul, Zayed and Shohagh were tried in absentia.
The court also fined them Tk 50,000 each.
The convict who got jail unto death is Hashem Ali.
According to the prosecution, Shahidul Islam, his brother Amzad Hossain and Abdul Wadud had been at loggerheads with Hashem Ali, Saidul Islam and Aijul Hossain over the ownership of a piece of land.
As a sequel to the enmity, on June 6, 2014, the convicts attacked on Shahidul, Amzad Hossain and Wadud with sharp weapons, leaving them dead.
Farhad Hossain, son of Shahidul Islam, lodged a complaint with Badalgachi Police against 24 people on the following day.
Police filed an FIR in this connection.
On December 5, 2021, police submitted a chargesheet against 20 people in the case.
After examining records and witnesses, the court handed down the judgment and acquitted ten people as allegations brought against them could not be proved.
