Questioning of IO Helal continues Bisabali or his family, villagers weren’t brought to the Tribunal in fear of exposing the truth
Wednesday, 27 June 2012
Prosecution had fixed three witnesses in Umedpur village, but none of them were produced before the Court. A charge of torturing and murder a person named Bisabali of this village has been brought against Mawlana Delawar Hossain Sayidee. Though the Charge says that it was conducted under command and supervision of Mawlana Syaidee, Defense lawyer said that none of the witnesses from that were produced before the Court, because it will expose the truth.
