He was handed over to Saudi police on July 13.

Police submitted chargesheet naming 13 on Aug 16 as the trial in the case was going on in a Sylhet court.

Ten of the accused have been arrested, including Kamrul’s brothers Ali Haider and Muhit Alam.

His other brother Shamim Ahmed is among the three fugitives.

Police Headquarters’ Additional Superintendent Mahabubul Karim, Sylhet Metropolitan Police’s Additional Commissioner Mohammad Rahmat Ullah and Assistant Commissioner AFF Nezam Uddin had left for kingdom early on Monday to bring Kamrul back.
