Faridul Alam, public prosecutor of Cox's Bazar District and Sessions Judge’s Court, confirmed the matter to UNB.
Earlier on December 21, 2020, the court issued an arrest warrant against Sagar Deb after proclaiming him as an absconding accused.
Major (retd) Sinha was killed in police firing at Baharchhara police checkpost on July 31 last year.
A case was filed against nine people, including then Teknaf police station OC Pradeep Kumar Das, over the killing by Sharmin Shahrier Ferdous, Sinha’s elder sister.
