Serial killer Rasu Khan appeals against death sentence

  • Published at 01:26 pm April 29th, 2015

Convicted rapist and serial killer Rasu Khan has appealed against the death sentence he was awarded last week.

The Chandpur jail authorities had filed the appeal on April 23, just a day after the verdict, in line with a request by the convict, the district prison officer said yesterday.

The self-confessed killer was sentenced to death on April 22 for killing garment worker Shahida Begum. He was given seven days to appeal to the High Court. He was also given seven years’ jail with a fine of Tk50,000. Shahida was killed after being raped near Nanupur canal of Faridganj in Chandpur on August 18, 2008.

Rasu was arrested on October 7, 2009 from Nirashpur of Tongi for stealing a fan from a mosque. He later confessed to the killing of 11 women after raping them.

He wished to kill a total of 101 women and then take refuge at the Shahjalal shrine in Sylhet.

Rasu’s first victim was the wife of his brother-in-law in 2007. He used to have relations with women after luring them in with a promise to marry them, but killed them after raping them in Chandpur’s remote areas.

Earlier, Rasu was acquitted in a case filed over the rape and murder of the teenaged Popy in Faridpur. He is facing eight other cases.
