A Cox’s Bazar court has remanded seven more suspects, including four police officers, over the killing of retired Bangladesh Army Major Sinha Md Rashed Khan in a reported police firing.

Senior Judicial Magistrate Court Judge Tamanna Farha on Wednesday placed the suspects in remand for seven days after the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) sought a 10-day remand.

Earlier on Monday, a court sent four policemen -- Sub-Inspector Litan Miah and constables Safanur Karim, Kamal Hossain and Abdullah Al Mamun -- to jail in the murder case.

RAB on Tuesday detained three more suspects over the murder of Major Sinha.

According to sources, the detainees 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.

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