The Supreme Court today directed Tofail Ahmed, upazila chairman of Naikhangchhari district of Bandarban, to surrender before a lower court in four weeks in connection with attacking and vandalising of a Buddhist temple at Ramu in Cox’s Bazar in 2012.
Tofail is the prime suspect in the Ramu incident according to a government investigation report.
The five-member bench of Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Mohammed Muzammel Hossain passed the order after cancelling the bail that he secured from the High Court on March 13.
