Earlier in the day, the Appellate Division upheld the life sentence of Badal Kumar Pal in a case over the seizure of 250 bottles of phensedyl from his possession in 1997.
Badal Pal of Jhenaidah Sadar Upazila was sentenced to life in prison in 2000.
On appeal against the verdict, the High Court acquitted Badal in the cases. Later, the state went to the appellate division against the HC order.
The verdict in this case is expected to determine proper disposal of many cases related to phensedyl.
