Dhaka, June 3- The Special Tribunal-6 of Dhaka set up temporarily at Bakshibazar of the city yesterday fixed July 12 for hearing on charge framing in a case filed under the Special Powers Act for allegedly carrying subversive activities against BNP Chief Begum Khaleda Zia and 37 others. Judge S Mohammad Ali of the tribunal on Sunday fixed the date taking into cognizance the time petition filed by the defendants on Sunday.
The case docket says that the accused persons allegedly carried subversive activities hurling petrol bomb on a passenger bus in the capital’s Jatrabari in January 2015.
Khaleda Zia’s lawyer Hannan Bhuiyan said, “Hearing on charge-framing in the case was earlier fixed for Sunday. But the High Court stayed legal procedures in the case on behalf of BNP Chief Khaleda Zia. So, we filed a petition to defer hearing on charge-framing.”
According to the case statement, the attack on the night of January 23, 2015, killed one person and injured 30 others, one of many bomb attacks that the country witnessed in the three months since early January when the BNP-led 20-party alliance begun a blockade for indefinite period.
On May 18, 2015, detectives submitted charge sheet against Khaleda Zia and the 37 people for the bomb attack.
The accused include BNP leaders MK Anwar, Ruhul Kabir Rizvi Ahmed, Amanullah Aman, Barkatullah Bulu, Habibunnabi Khan Sohel, Mir Sarafat Ali Sapu, Azizul Bari Helal, Sultan Salauddin Tuku, former BNP lawmaker from Dhaka Salauddin Ahmed, Khaleda’s advisors Khandker Mahbub Hossain and Shawkat Mahmud, her special assistant Shimul Biswas and press secretary Maruf Kamal Khan. – Special Correspondent
