A Dhaka court on Thursday once again granted two more months to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to complete their investigation in the General Manzoor murder case.
Judge SM Saiful Islam of the First Additional District and Sessions Judge’s Court of Dhaka passed the order after Special Superintendent of CID Abdul Kahhar Akaand who is also the Investigation Officer (IO) of the case, submitted a petition seeking more time for further investigation.The time petition of Akaant says that he visited USA in June last year and recorded the statement of Manzoor’s daughter Lubna Manzoor, but failed to record the statement of Manzoor’s wife as she was sick that time. Later, her counsel had told the IO that he would be informed after her recovery but the lawyer did not inform her anything so far.
Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad and also a Special Envoy to the Prime Minister, is the main accused in the case. Earlier on January 8 of this year, the same court asked CID to complete the investigation by March 12, 2015.
Major General Manzoor, who was commander of Sector-8 during the Liberation War, was killed at the Chittagong Cantonment on June 1, 1981, two days after the assassination of the then President Ziaur Rahman.
On February 28 in 1995, after 14 years of the murder, Manzoor’s elder brother Advocate Abul Mansur Ahmed lodged the murder case with Panchlaish Police Station of the port city.
Before the present judge, SM Saiful Islam, judges were changed for 23 times during the last 19 years. – Court Correspondent
