The Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) has filed before a court a charge sheet against 24 people for their alleged involvement in the murder of Bangladesh Chhatra League’s (BCL) Chittagong city unit leader Sudipta Biswas.

Sudipta, 26, son of Babul Biswas of Sadarghat area and then assistant general secretary of BCL’s city unit, was beaten to death by some miscreants in Dakkhin Nalapara area on October 6, 2017.

“PBI submitted the charge sheet before the prosecution section of the court on Sunday. The next day, the charge sheet was produced before the court from the prosecution section. The court on Monday fixed February 9 for hearing on the charge sheet,” said inspector Santosh Kumar Chakma, the investigating officer. 

So far, PBI sleuths have been able to arrest only 18 of the 24 accused.

Among those named in the charge sheet are Didarul Alam Masum, a leader of Lalkhan Bazar ward unit of Awami League. He has been in judicial custody since his arrest by PBI on August 4, 2019.

Others named in the charge sheet include members of Chhatra League and Jubo League.

On January 19, 2020, police arrested Jahedur Rahman Jahed, the main suspect, in connection with the murder from Ispahani intersection in Khulshi area.

Pranab Chowdhury, officer-in-charge of Khulshi police station, said that a police patrol team chased Jahed and his followers after they had attacked cops in the area around 11:30pm that day.

Jahed was arrested while others managed to escape, the OC said, adding that three policemen were injured in the attack.
