Earlier on March 08, the Appellate Division upheld the death penalty for Mir Quasem Ali, central working committee leader of Jamaat.

On February 24, after concluding the hearing, the apex court had fixed March 8 for pronouncement of its verdict on the appeal filed by Mir Quasem Ali against the death sentence.

The International Crimes Tribunal-2 in a verdict had sentenced Mir Quasem Ali to death on November 2, 2014.

On November 30, 2014, Mir Quasem filed an appeal before the Supreme Court challenging the death penalty.
