A Gaibandha court has awarded death sentence to seven accused, including former MP and retired Colonel Abdul Quader Khan, in the murder case of Awami League MP Manjurul Islam Liton.

Gaibandha District and Sessions Judge Dilip Kumar Bhumik's court announced the verdict on Thursday.

The convicts are – former Jatiya Party (JaPa) MP Abdul Quader Khan, Mehedi Hasan, Shahin Mia, Anwarul Islam, Abdul Mannan, Shamsuzzoha and Chandan Kumar.

Another accused, Subol Chandra Das, died in prison.

Liton, a former MP from Gaibandha-1 constituency, was gunned down by miscreants at his village home in Masterpara of Sundarganj upazila on December 31, 2016.
