font size    

A Bangladeshi court in northeastern Sylhet town Tuesday gave death sentence to an Islamist militant for a bomb attack on a judge in the town late last year, private television channel NTV reported.

The television said the speedy trial tribunal of Sylhet, 344 km from Dhaka, handed down the punishment to an Islamist militant of Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) for a bomb attack on a Sylhet judge late last year.

The banned hardliner group JMB is blamed for strings of bombings and suicide bomb attacks for establishing Islamic rule in the country.

Another court in southwestern Jhenaidah on Tuesday handed death sentence to 21 Islamist militants of JMB for Aug. 17 countrywide bombings, in which militants blasted around 500 bombs killing three people and injuring 150 others.

After the Aug. 17 bombings, the JMB militants exploded series of bombs in different places, including courts, and made suicide bomb attacks killing 28 people and injuring hundreds.
