Narayanganj: A fresh case has been filed against Nur Hossain, the prime accused in the sensational seven-murder case, on charge of transferring a firearm, whose licence had been revoked, to other person.
Sub-inspector Ajit Kumar Mitra of Siddhirganj Police Station filed the case on Monday noon.
Officer-in-charge of the police station M Alauddin said Nur Hossain gave the firearm to his brother-in-law Nur-e-Alam instead of surrendering it to the state after its licence had been cancelled.
Nur Hossain, also a Narayanganj City Corporation councillor, had obtained licences for a total of 11 firearms in his name.
After the gruesome killing of seven people, including Narayanganj panel mayor Nazrul Islam and senior lawyer Chandan Kumar Sarker, in late April, the district administration took away the licences.
Later, police seized nine of the firearms while the two others remained traceless.
However, one of the two firearms -- a pistol -- was found inside a private car that was rammed by a train at Malibagh Bazar level crossing in the capital on Friday. The car belongs to Nur-e-Alam.
After the seven murders, Nur Hossain fled to India. However, Indian police arrested him on June 14 and since then he has been in Indian jail.
