KURIGRAM, June 23 (UNB): A Kurigram court has sentenced six members of banned militant outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) to death for killing a freedom fighter (FF).

Kurigram District and Sessions Court Judge Abdul Mannan passed the order on Thursday.

The death-row convicts are Rajib Gandhi, Riazul Islam alias Mehedi, Firoz Hasan alias Mokhles, Mahabyb Hasan Milon, and Abu Nasir alias Rubel and Golam Rabbani(absconding).

Among the seven accused in the case, Saddam Hossain died in a gunfight with the law enforcers while the case was under trial.

On March 22, 2016, some militants attacked FF Hossain Ali, who converted to Christianity, when he went out for a morning walk in Kurigram town.

After stabbing him with sharp weapons, they exploded several cocktails and fled from the spot.

His son Ruhul Amin Azad filed two separate cases under the Explosive Substances Act the following day.

On November 5 that year, a charge sheet in these cases were submitted and the court framed charges on October 21, 2018.
