A Dhaka court on Thursday set June 25 for submission of the investigation report in a case filed over the Holey Artisan Café attack.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate NurunnaharYasmin fixed the date as the investigation officer of the case, Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit Inspector Humayun Kabir, failed to submit the probe report on the previously set deadline on Thursday.
Back in April 10, the probe submission date was extended by the court.
In the evening of July 1, 2016, five armed militants entered the Holey Artisan Café and Bakery with bombs, machetes and pistols. They had taken several people hostage, including 18 foreigners.
At the end of the siege, 22 hostages, including nine Italians, seven Japanese, one Indian, one Bangladesh-born American and two Bangladeshis, were found dead.
Autopsy reports had shown that the militants sprayed the victims with bullets indiscriminately and also cut their throats to confirm their death inside the café.
In addition to that, two senior police officers – Banani Police Station then officer-in-charge Salauddin Ahmed Khan and Detective Branch assistant commissioner Robiul Islam – were shot dead when police tried to gain control of the bakery.
A case was filed with Gulshan Police Station in connection with the worst terror attack of the country.
Later, the case was transferred to the Detective Branch of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP).
