Bangladeshi murder suspect deported

RIYADH: The Bangladeshi domestic aide who was arrested in Jeddah on a Dhaka murder charge, was deported Thursday, a senior official from the Bangladesh Consulate General’s Office in Jeddah told Arab News on Monday.

Magistrate Anwarul Haque of Sylhet Metropolitan Magistrate Court 2 passed the order to send the suspect, Kamrul Islam, to jail after he was brought to the court on Friday morning.

“A team of three police officers who came from Dhaka to Jeddah, escorted the suspect to Bangladesh for further investigation and trial,” Bangladesh Consul General A.K.M. Shahidul Karim told Arab News here. He added that the suspect was deported following a request made by his country’s government,

Karim thanked the Saudi government for the wonderful cooperation extended to his government in arresting the suspect and helping the Bangladesh police in taking him home.

On a request made by Dhaka, a royal decree to deport Islam to his native country where the murder took place, was issued before Eid Al-Adha. The Royal Court issued the directive to the Saudi chapter of Interpol for necessary implementation.

On complaints made by the Bangladesh government about the murder of a 13-year-old boy in Dhaka, Kamrul Islam, who was working as a driver for a Saudi family, was arrested in Jeddah on July 13. He was detained at the Briman prison in Jeddah.

Interpol also issued a red notice to Saudi Arabia to return Bangladeshi murder suspect Kamrul Islam who was in police custody in Jeddah. Interpol Bangladesh National Central Bureau (NCB) officials sent the necessary information about the incident to its counterpart, Saudi Arabian NCB.

The two countries are not governed by an extradition treaty.

The murder victim, Sheikh Samiul Alam Rajon, was tortured to death by a group in Kumargaon on the outskirts of Sylhet around 7:30 a.m. on July 8.

The suspect, who arrived in Jeddah following the killing, was arrested with the help of his Saudi sponsor.
Following the issue of a warrant, the Bangladesh government placed Kamrul Islam on the no-travel list following preliminary inquiry, but he fled to Saudi Arabia soon after his brother Muhit was detained on July 8.

The murder case was filed by Jalalabad police, in which Rajon’s father later became a plaintiff.

Muhit was listed as the prime suspect in the case, while his brother Kamrul Islam, 24, their accomplice Ali Haider, 34, and guard Moyna Miah, 45, were charged with murder.

Muhit’s cousin, Ismail Hossain Abullus, was also detained in connection with the incident.
A 28-minute video, recorded on a mobile phone, shows the victim tied to a pole in front of a workshop in the then-closed Sultan Ali Market, beside the Dhaka-Sunamganj Road.
