Daily Dhaka Times: A three-member police team is going to Saudi Arabia on Monday to bring back Quamrul Islam, the fugitive accused in the murder case of the teenager Samiul Alam Rajon.

The members of the team are additional superintendent of police headquarters, Mahbubul Karim, senior assistant superintendent of police, AFM Nizam Uddin, and additional deputy commissioner (media) of Sylhet Metropolitan Police, Rahmat Ullah.

Rahmat Ullah, (ADC, media in-charge) of Sylhet Metropolitan Police, said “the flight is scheduled to leave for Saudi Arabia at 2:00 am on Monday and we have plans to return by 15 October.”

On 8 July, 13-year-old Sheikh Samiul Alam Rajon, son of Sheikh Azizur Rahman of Badeali village in Sadar upazila, was brutally tortured to death over a theft at Sundar Ali Market in the Kumargaon area of Sylhet town.

The killers themselves took the video footage of the incident, which went viral on social networking site Facebook and video-sharing site Youtube, which triggered a widespread outcry.

Ten people were arrested in connection with the gruesome murder and eight of them made their ‘confessional’ statements separately in the Rajon murder case.

Quamrul Islam, 24, brother of main accused Muhit Alam, fled to Saudi Arabia after the incident, where he was held by local Bangladeshis and then handed over to Jeddah police.

The Saudi Interior Ministry earlier approved the extradition of Quamrul to Bangladesh.

On 21 July, Interpol issued a warrant for Quamrul.
