Felani’s father, uncle return homeNew Age online
A four member team who attended the trial of Felani, and testified before a Cooch Behar court of India, returned home Tuesday afternoon.
A special escort of the Indian Border Security Force accompanied them up to the border point.
They returned home as Felani’s father and her uncle submitted their depositions in the murder case of Felani before a General Security Force Court in India on Monday.
They entered Bangladeshi territory through Burimari land port of Lalmonirhat district at 1:00pm, Jahanara begum, Felani’s mother said.
A press briefing is scheduled to depict their visit at BGB-45 headquarters in Kurigram in the afternoon.
The team included Felani’s father Nurul Islam, her uncle Hanif Ali, Lieutenant Colonel Ziaul Haque Khaled, commanding officer of Bangladesh Border Guard-45, and Bangladesh’s public prosecutor SM Abraham Lincoln.
They had left Kurigram for Cooch Behar on Aug 18 to attend the trial of Felani’s killing. She was brutally shot dead while crossing a barbed fence on January 7, 2011, by a BSF man.
Felani’s parents demand that the killers get capital punishment.
