Kibria murder case shifted to Speedy Trial Tribunal


Staff Correspondent: The case filed over the murder of former finance minister Shah AMS Kibria has been shifted to Speedy Trial Tribunal in Sylhet.

Habiganj district and sessions judge Md Atabullah sent the case to the tribunal on Thursday afternoon.

On June 2, Judicial Magistrate Court of Habiganj district shifted the case to the District and Sessions Judge Court.

On January 27, 2005, former Finance Minister Shah AMS Kibria among five were killed in a grenade attack during a public meeting in Habiganj.

Local Awami League leader Abdul Majid Khan filed two cases with the Habiganj sadar police station – one for murder and the other under the explosives act.

Members of outlawed militant group Harkatul Jihad Al Islami, better known as Huji, and several local BNP leaders have been named in the supplementary charge sheets pressed in November last year.

Kibria’s family members expressed dissatisfaction with the supplementary charge sheet as several names including then Habiganj deputy commissioner Emdadul Haque were dropped from the list of accused by the investigator.
