At least nine police personnel have been sued over the killing of retired army major Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan in a reported police firing in Teknaf upazila of Cox’s Bazar..

A case has been filed with the Cox’s Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Court around 12pm on Wednesday.

According to the case statement, Sinha’s sister Sharmin Shahria Firdaus accused nine people including Teknaf police station’s Officer-in-Charge Pradip, Baharchhara Check-post In-Charge Liakat, Sub-inspector Nanda Dulal Rakkhit, and Tutul, ASI Liton Miah, Constable Safanur Karim, Kamal Hossain, Md Abdullah Al Mamun, and Md Mostafa.

Judicial Magistrate Tamanna Farha has ordered the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) to investigate the incident and directed Teknaf police station to file the case as a deposition.

Earlier on Friday night, Sinha was killed in police firing in Cox's Bazar Marine Drive.

According to the case statement, Baharchhara Check-post In-Charge Liakat and SI Nanda Dulal Rakkhit challenged retired major Sinha and his associate--who were visiting the area to shoot a documentary-- on July 31.

Sinha and his associate, Sifat, a videographer, were dragged off their vehicle despite providing their respective identities. The police officers then fired at Sinha, killing him on the spot.

After the murder, the police officers also filed two fake cases against the Sinha and others to frame them as drug dealers, said Sharmin Shahria Firdaus, Sinha’s sister.

“Not only did they kill my brother, but they have also mutilated his dead body to make him unrecognisable,” added the plaintiff of the case.
