PM assures Maj Sinha’s mother of probe, trial

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said persons responsible for the killing of retired army major Sinha Md Rashed would be brought to justice after a proper investigation when she talked to his mother over phone.

"The prime minister today [yesterday] assured Rashed's family of carrying out a proper probe into the killing and trying the persons responsible," PM Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim told BSS.

Karim said the premier consoled Rashed's mother and also assured his family of financial assistance.

He said Rashed's mother thanked the prime minister for enquiring about their family.

Rashed, who also served as a Special Security Force (SSF) member, was killed reportedly in police firing at Baharchhara police check-post in Cox's Bazar's Teknaf on Friday night.

Immediately after the incident, authorities withdrew 16 policemen, including the check-post in-charge, who were on duty at the scene in Teknaf's Marine Drive.

The home ministry has formed a high-level community that launched an investigation into the killing.
