Attack on Hasina's convoy: 4 get life term, 44 others 7-yr jail

A Satkhira court on Tuesday (April 18) sentenced former BNP MP Habibul Islam Habib and three others to life term imprisonment and 44 others to seven years jail in an arms case filed over the attack on then opposition leader Sheikh Hasina’s convoy in Kolaroa of Sathkhira on August 30, 2002.

Judge Biswanath Mondal of the Special Tribunal-3 of Satkhira announced the verdict.

Abdul Latif, the public prosecutor of the Satkhira judge court, confirmed the matter.

On 30 August, 2002, Prime Minister Hasina, the then opposition chief, was returning to Magura after visiting a freedom fighter's wife in Satkhira when her convoy came under attack in Kalaroa upazila of the district.

Sheikh Hasina survived the attack relatively unscathed but many Awami League leaders and workers were injured along with some journalists.
