The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Tuesday acquitted a man of the charge of killing his wife and daughter in 1997 on which he was sentenced to death by a Bagerhat court in 2000.

The convict, Sheikh Zahid of Fakirhat in Bagerhat has been passing days in the condemned cell in jail since the trial court judgement.

The apex court led by the chief justice pronounced the verdict after hearing Zahid's 'jail appeal' virtually.

The court also ordered to ensure that Sheikh Zahid be released from jail as early as possible before publishing the full text of the verdict.

According to the case document, Zahid's wife Rahima Begum and her 18-month daughter Reshma Khatun were killed in 1997 while they were sleeping at their home.

Later, Rahima's father Moinuddin filed a case with Fakirhat Police Station and the police arrested Zahid in the case.

After trial, the Bagherhat district and sessions judge's court sentenced him to death in June 2000.

The case later came to the High Court for death reference and Zahid also filed a jail appeal against the conviction. The High Court in July 2004 upheld the trial court verdict.

Zahid later filed a jail appeal to the Appellate Division.
