5 get death for killing Japanese in B’desh

Dhaka: Five Islamist militants from the banned JMB outfit were today sentenced to death for brutally killing a Japanese farmer in Bangladesh in 2015, in one of the first attacks targeting foreigners, minority Hindus and secular Muslims. “They will be hanged until death,” Judge Noresh Chandra Sarker pronounced as four of the five detained convicts were escorted to the courtroom. The judgment observed that the Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh operatives murdered Japanese citizen Kunio Hoshi in a “pre-planned manner to defame and destabilise” Bangladesh. PTI
