According to sources, Nurul, Nizam and Ayas are witnesses named in the arms and narcotics cases filed by police against Sinha, Sifat and Shipra.

Earlier on Saturday, Nurul and Ayas told the media that they were completely unaware of the incident.

They said that they had neither witnessed the incident nor hear about it. 

The two also claimed that police had taken their signatures on blank paper, without making the reason clear to them.

Nurul Amin of Marishbunia in Teknaf, the first witness, claimed he had only heard about the incident, but when he went to the area later, there was no evidence there.

Another witness, M Ayas of the same area, said he and Nurul Amin were called to the local police outpost after the incident and their signatures were taken on the day following the murder at Teknaf police station.

The witness claimed he was not willing to affix his signature on the paper, but the police forced him to do it.

Meanwhile, Sifat and Shipra were granted bail in two cases filed by the police on Sunday and Monday respectively.

On July 31, Major (rtd) Sinha was killed in police firing at Baharchhara police check-post.

Sharmin Shahriar Ferdous, elder sister of Sinha, filed a case at Teknaf Senior Judicial Magistrate Court on Wednesday.

Major (rtd) Sinha, along with Sifat and Shipra, had gone to Cox’s Bazar for the purpose of making a documentary film on travelling.
