A Dhaka court on Monday sent four BCL men, accused in Jahangirnagar University student Zubair Ahmed murder case, to jail after their surrender before the court on Monday.
The accused – Najmul Hossein Plabon, Kamruzzaman Sohag, Majharul Islam and Mahamudul Hasan Masud – are JU students.
Judicial Magistrate Washim Shiekh ordered to send them to jail after rejecting their bail prayers.
Zubair, an honours final year student of English department of the university, was brutally tortured and stabbed by the accused and some others on January 8 over previous enmity. He succumbed to his injuries at a city hospital the next day.
Of the total 13 accused, the four activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League surrendered to the court.
