A Sylhet court has sentenced 4 people to death for murdering blogger Ananta Bijoy Das.

Sylhet Counterterrorism Tribunal Judge Nurul Amin Biplob reported the decision in the case on Wednesday, 30 March.

The court likewise cleared questionable blogger Shafiur Rahman Farabi for the situation.

Ananta Bijoy Das was hacked to death by masked men with machetes in Sylhet in 2015.

His elder brother Ratneswar Dash filed a murder case at Jalalabad police station on that night against four persons.

Criminal Investigation Department inspector Arman Ali, also the investigation officer in the case, submitted a supplementary charge sheet to the court on 5 February 2017, against the six accused.

Das wrote blogs for Mukto-Mona, a website once moderated by Avijit Roy, himself hacked to death in February 2015.

Of the convicts, Abul Khayer has been in jail since the filing of the case in 2015, while three others – Faisal Ahmed, Harun Ur Rashid and Abul Hossain, remain absconding.

Public Prosecutor Mobinur Rahman Titu commented that the court has conveyed a fair decision.

"It has once again been proven that crime cannot escape the law," he said.
