A Bagerhat court today (Feb 28) sentenced five members of the banned militant organisation Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) to different terms of imprisonment for carrying out sabotage activities.

Bagerhat Additional Judicial Magistrate Md Atikus Samad passed the order and fined each Tk 10,000 in the presence of the convicts at the courtroom.

Among the convicts, Md Morshed Alam, Md Saiful Islam, Md Zahirul Islam and Md Maqsudur Rahman were sentenced to six years' imprisonment while Tariqul Islam was jailed for five years. They are all from Satkhira, Pirojpur and Bagerhat districts.

State counsel Md Shahiduzzaman confirmed the matter expressed his satisfaction.
