A tribunal is set to deliver its verdict on Thursday in a case filed against Oishee Rahman over killing her parents --police officer Mahfuzur Rahman and his wife Swapna Rahman-- in 2013.
Judge Syed Ahmed of the Speedy Trial Tribunal-3 on November 4 fixed the date for delivering the judgment, in presence of three accused in the case- the couple’s daughter Oishee Rahman, her friends Mizanur Rahman Rony and Asaduzzaman Johny.
Special Public Prosecutor Mohammad Mahbubur Rahman said, “We expect highest punishment for the accused.”
Meanwhile, Oishee’s counsel Faruk Ahmed said the prosecution failed to prove the charges brought against his client and the witnesses who had testified earlier didn’t identify Oishee as killer.
The trial in the case over the killing of the couple started on July 8, 2014, through recording depositions of the witnesses.
A total of 39 witnesses, out of 57, gave their depositions before the tribunal.
On August 16, 2013, police recovered the bodies of SB Inspector Mahfuzur Rahman and his wife Swapna Rahman from their Chamelibagh residence in the capital.
Later, Oishee surrendered to the police confessing to her involvement in the killing.
Police also arrested her two friends Asaduzzaman and Mizanur and domestic help of their house Khadiza Akhter Sumi in connection with the murder.
Mahfuzur’s brother Mohammad Mashiur Rahman Rubel filed a case with Paltan Police Station on August 17.
Abul Khayer, inspector of Detective Branch of Police, submitted two separate charge-sheets -- one against Oishee and her two friends on March 9, 2014, and the other against Sumi as she was then a juvenile.
