A Kishoreganj court on Monday sentenced four people to death and jailed four others for life for killing former public works employee Abdur Rahman in 2006.

Kishoreganj Additional District and Sessions Judge Md Abdur Rahim delivered the verdict in presence of the convicts.

The convicts sentenced to death are Kashem, Nazrul, Liton and Sattar. They are residents of Singua village in Karimganj Upazila.

The court awarded life-imprisonment to Siraj, Khokon, Shahed and Kantu.

The convicts were also fined Tk 100,000 each.

Abdur Rahman was hacked to death over a dispute on April 23 in 2006, according to the case dossier.

His wife Nurunnahar was also injured in the incident. She filed a case against eight people with Karimganj Police Station over the murder.

The court opened trial in the case after police had pressed charges against the accused in 2008.
