Another Rapid Action Battalion-11 member yesterday made a confessional statement before a Narayanganj court admitting his involvement in the sensational seven-murder in the district last April.

Radio operator Arif Hossain told the court of Narayanganj Senior Judicial Magistrate HM Shafiqul Islam about his involvement in the murders and described how those were carried out.

He along with four others was arrested on August 26 and placed on an eight-day remand the following day.

The other four are Lance Nayek Hira Miah and Belal Hossain, Constable Emdadul Haque, and Sepoy Abu Tayab. Aside from Belal Hossian, the other three made confessional statements on Saturday. 

Besides, another Rab personnel, constable Sihabuddin, who was arrested on Saturday is on an eight-day remand.      

With the six, investigators have so far arrested nine Rab-11 members in connection with the murders. The other three arrested are -- Lt Col Tareque Sayeed Mohammad, Maj Arif Hossain and Lt Commander MM Rana.

Narayanganj city panel mayor Nazrul Islam, his driver and three associates, and senior lawyer Chandan Sarker and his driver were abducted separately but around the same time on April 27 from Dhaka-Narayanganj Link Road.
