‘Further steps will be done soon to back them at home’
Two Bangladeshi workers in Dubai will be relieved from the death sentence handed down by the Dubai court as the deceased family have signed the clemency paper on Monday.
The two accused are Kamal Hossain, son of Rawshan Ali of Sirsthan village under Kachua upazila in Chandpur and Sajdu Miah, son of Arshad Ali of Kurshi village under Dhanbari upazila in Tangail.
Mohammad Artaf Hossain, an official of Bureau of Manpower, Employment and Training in the district, said the duo killed Nur Mohammad, 27, on February, 2010, in Dubai.
Nur, son of Samad Talukder, hailed from Courtgaon village under Sirajdikhan upazila in Munshiganj.
Later, a Dubai court sentenced them to death after a case filed against him.
Munshiganj Deputy Commissioner Saiful Hassan Badal said: “After the verdict given to them, the government took initiative to settle the matter and save our image abroad.”
As per the laws of the country, the verdict will only be reduced if the family members of the deceased forgive the accused. So, the government started to convince them and finally they signed in the clemency paper. The accused family gave Tk12 lakh to Nur’s family as compensation on the day, he added.
Further steps will be done soon to back them at home, the official said.
