A Lakshmipur court has sentenced eight people to death for killing Chhatra League leader Mehedi Hasan Jashim in Lakshmipur in 2013.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Amina Farhin announced the verdict on Monday.

Seven of the convicts were in court to hear the verdict but one, Hizbur Rahman Swapan, is absconding.

Jashim was one of the Chhatra League’s secretaries at Kafil Uddin Degree College in Lakshmipur’s Sadar Upazila.

He was shot to death on February 10 in 2013 in his residence.
