BSS, Dhaka

The investigation officer (IO) of the case, lodged under the anti-terror act over the grisly militant attack at the capital’s Holey Artisan Bakery in 2016, finished placing his testimony in the trial.

After his testimony, defence counsels started cross-examining the IO and inspector of counter terrorism Humayan Kabir. Judge Md Mujibur Rahman of Dhaka Anti-terrorism Special Tribunal then adjourned the hearing till October 24 as the cross-examination remained unfinished.

Militants killed 20 innocent people, most of them foreigners, in the attack carried out on July 1, 2016. Two police officials valiantly laid down their lives while trying to save people there. Later, five militants were killed in a commando operation.

Police filed the case under the anti-terror act with Gulshan Police Station. The trial initiated on November 26, 2018 by framing charges against the eight accused– Jahangir Alam alias Rajib Gandhi, Rakibul Hasan Regan, Rashedul Islam alias Rash, Sohel Mahfuz, Mizanur Rahman alias Boro Mizan, Hadisur Rahman Sagar, Shariful Islam and Mamunur Rashid.
