Three more Rohingyas arrested earlier in Mohibullah murder case in Teknaf upazila of Cox’s Bazar district were put on remand for three days on Wednesday.

Cox’s Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Tamanna Farah granted the remand prayer when they were produced before her court on Wednesday. Police sought seven days remand for interrogation, said court police Inspector Chandan Kumar Chakrabarty.

Abdus Salam, 32, Ziaur Rahman, 30, and Md Ilias, 35 were remanded in the case.

The same court had previously granted law enforcers a three-day remand to interrogate two other suspects in the case. They were Md Selim, 33, and

Shawkat Ullah, 23. A group of unidentified gunmen killed 48-year-old Mohibullah at a refugee camp in Cox's Bazar’s Ukhiya on Sept 29.

Mohibullah was the chairman of moderate Rohingya group Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights. Western media termed him as a ‘voice for the Rohingya’.

His family believes another Rohingya group – the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army, or ARSA – is responsible for his death.

Bangladeshi law enforcers also suspect that a Rohingya faction orchestrated the killing.
