A Jhenidah court on Monday sentenced eight persons to life imprisonment for killing a Jubo League leader at Sadar upazila in 2010.

The convicts are -- Shanti Hossain, Abdul Karim, Lavlu, Abu Zahid Moni, Mizanur Rahman, Ibrahim Khalil alias Idris, Mukul, and Nasir. 

The court also fined them Tk 5,000 each in the case, in default, to serve six months more in jail.

Additional District and Sessions Court Judge Md Shawkat Hossain handed down the verdict.

However, the court also sentenced them seven years' imprisonment in another case filed under Explosive Substances Act.

The court acquitted three others accused-- Ganna union parishad chairman Nasir Uddin as charges against him were not proved, and Mashiar Rahman, and Ujjal Hossain due to their death during trial proceedings.

Jakir Hossain, then joint convener of Ganna union unit Jubo League, was shot to death by miscreants on his way to home on at Kashimnagar village under the union on July 7 in 2010.
