A court in Feni on Tuesday awarded death sentence to 39 people for killing Fulgazi upazila AL president and former chairman Ekramul Huq Ekram in Feni.
 
The court also acquitted 16 others accused including BNP leader Mahtabuddin Minar and Jubo League leader Ziaul Alam Mister.
 
Feni District and Sessions Judge Aminul Huq passed the order in presence of the accused BNP leader Mahtabuddin Minar and others.
 
Armed assailants shot at Ekram, also local Awami League leader, and set ablaze his car in a broad daylight near Bilashi Cinema Hall in Feni town on May 20, 2014.
 
Ekram's brother Rezaul Hoque Jasim filed the murder case with Feni Sadar Police Station on that day, accusing Mahtab Uddin Chowdhury and 30 to 35 unnamed people.
 
Police pressed charges against 56 people in August the same year. The court indicted them in March 2016 and heard arguments until January 28 this year.
