A Dhaka court on Sunday postponed recording the deposition of the witnesses in blogger Ahmed Rajib Haider murder case.
Rajib’s father Najim Uddin was present at Dhaka’s Speedy Trial Tribunal-3 on Sunday to testify.
But acting Judge Shahed Nur Uddin deferred the deposition and fixed May 21 as the new date. The regular was on leave yesterday.Ganajagaran Manch activist Rajib Haider was hacked to death on Feb 15, 2013 in front of his Pallabi home. The court, on Mar 18, indicted eight men, including seven students of private North South University and extremist group Ansarullah Bangla team chief Jashim Uddin Rahmani.
The accused NSU students are Faisal Bin Nayeem alias Deep, 22, Maksudul Hassan Anik, 23, Ehsan Reza Rumman, 23, Nayeem Sikder Irad, 19, Nafis Imtiaz, 22, Sadman Yasir Mahmud, 20, and Rezwanul Azad Rana, 30.
