The Satkhira Sessions Judge Court has rejected the appeals against the sentence passed in connection with the attack on the convoy of then opposition leader and current Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina at Kalaroa in Satkhira. 

Senior District Sessions Judge Sheikh Mofizur Rahman pronounced the verdict in the cases on Wednesday.

According to the details of the case, on February 4, the Chief Judicial Magistrate Court of Satkhira sentenced all 50 accused to different terms in the case relating to the attack on the convoy of Sheikh Hasina.

Enraged by the verdict, the convicts filed a criminal appeal case with the District Sessions Judge Court.

The convicts Golam Rasul, Adv Abdus Sattar, Adv Abdus Samad, Zahurul Islam, Shahabuddin, Rakib and Monirul Islam filed the appeals.

At the same time, the convicts also applied for bail in the District Sessions Judge Court, which were rejected. They then applied for bail in the High Court.

The High Court also rejected their bail pleas and directed the Sessions Judge Court to dispose of their criminal appeal case by September 25. Following that order, the four appeal cases were recently heard in the Sessions Judge's Court in the fastest possible time and on Wednesday verdicts were pronounced in three appeals except for that of Adv Abdus Sattar.

A third hearing date has been fixed for Adv Abdus Sattar's appeal case, No 27/21 as well, his lawyer said.

The verdicts have been announced within the September 25 deadline set by the High Court for the disposal of these appeal cases, said Public Prosecutor Adv Abdul Latif.

On August 30, 2002, then opposition leader and currently Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina went to Satkhira Sadar Hospital with her party central leaders and activists to visit the rape survivor wife of a freedom fighter.

Later, at around 12 noon, she left for Jessore via Kalaroa with her tour companions. When the convoy reached the BNP office in Kalaroa Bazar, terrorists attacked her car in an attempt to kill her.
