KANGAR: The High Court here today sentenced two Immigration Department officers in the state to death for the murder of a Bangladeshi man in October 2014.

Judicial Commissioner Abu Bakar Katar, in handing out the sentence to Mohd Aminnudin Mohd Yasin and Zuhairul Effendy Zualkafli, both 35, said the court found that the defence has failed to raise reasonable doubt against the prosecution’s case.

They were jointly charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code which carries a mandatory death penalty upon conviction.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Badius Zaman Ahmad prosecuted, while lawyer Rahamatullah Baharudeen represented both accused.
