kamrul-wbSaudi Arabia has agreed to send back Kamrul Islam who is one of the accused of beating to death Sylhet teenager Samiul Alam Rajan.
The whole process will not take more than two weeks, State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam wrote on his official Facebook page Thursday night.
Islam, his two brothers and several others tied Rajan, 13, to a pole and clubbed him to death on charges of trying to steal a rickshaw on July 8 at Kumargaon.
They recorded the brutal beating on mobile phone and circulated it on the internet, triggering a huge uproar.
Islam, who works in Saudi Arabia, fled to the Middle-Eastern country after the incident but expatriate Bangladeshis caught him in Jeddah.
“Saudi Royal court approved deportation of Quamrul (sic),” State Minister Alam wrote.
“They have already issued letter to Interpol. (A) few other paper works should not take more than two weeks.”
Police chief AKM Shahidul Hoque had told the media about seeking Interpol’s assistance to get back Islam.
The international police organisation issued a ‘red notice’ on Islam in July.
Sylhet Metropolitan Police pressed charges in court against 13 people, including Islam, on Aug 16.
Police have arrested three of the accused, including Islam’s brother Muhith Alam, and eight others.
Three of them have reportedly confessed to the crime before a local court.
