Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested another policeman in the murder case of retired Army Major Sinha Md Rashed Khan.

Rubel Sharma, a constable at Teknaf police station, was brought to the RAB office on Sunday night for interrogation and later he was arrested in connection with the murder, said Major Mehedi Hasan, deputy commander of RAB 15, Cox's Bazar.

The name of Rubel, also a close associate of suspended Teknaf police station officer-in-charge (OC) Pradeep Kumar Das, came to the surface following interrogation of the other accused in the case, he added.

Meanwhile, a court in Cox's Bazar ordered the policeman to be sent to jail after RAB members produced him before the court on Monday afternoon.

Senior Judicial Magistrate Tamanna Farah passed the order, said Pradip Kumar Das, the court inspector.

RAB, however, did not submit any petition seeking remand against Rubel Sharma, he added. 

On the night of July 31, Sinha was shot dead by police at Shamlapur police check post on Marine Drive in Teknaf's Baharchhara.

Sinha was on his way back to Nilima Resort in Himchhari after filming a video on Marishbunia hill in Teknaf.

On August 5, Sinha's sister Sharmin Shahriar Ferdous filed a case with the Cox's Bazar Chief Judicial Magistrate Court against nine people, including Pradeep, suspended Baharchhara police outpost in-charge Inspector Liakat Ali, and assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Nanda Dulal Raxit.

Investigation agency RAB arrested 14 people, including Rubel, in the murder case so far.

Twelve people, including six police personnel and three members of Armed Police Battalion (APBn), have given confessional statements in the case.

Pradeep, who was remanded for 15 days in four phases, did not confess in court.
