A petition has been filed seeking a revision of retired major Sinha murder case filed by his sister Sharmin Shariya.

Teknaf's Baharchhara police outpost's suspended in-charge inspector Liakot Ali's lawyer on Sunday filed the petition in the Cox's Bazar district and sessions judge's court.

Lawyer Masud Salah Uddin mentioned that the entire trial of the case filed by his sister over Sinha's murder is being conducted without following Section 205D of the Code of Criminal Procedure, reports UNB.

As a result, there are doubts about the fairness of Sinha's murder and the establishment of justice.
