Charge in MP’s son Rony shooting 2 to death deferred again


A Dhaka court on Tuesday again deferred the hearing on the charge framing against Bakhtiar Alam Rony, son of Awami League MP Pinu Khan, in a case filed for shooting two people to death in the city’s New Eskaton area, last year.
Dhaka’s Second Additional Metropolitan Sessions Judge Samsun Nahar fixed February 28 for the next hearing in response to a time petition of Rony’s lawyer due to his sickness. Earlier, on January 5, another court fixed February 2 for hearing on
charge framing against Bakhtiar Alam Rony. On August 13, last year, a court of Dhaka took cognizance of the charges against Bakhtiar Alam Rony, in the case.
Detective Branch (DB) of Police pressed charges against Rony for the double murder on July 21, last year. On April 13, of the same year, Rony, said to be in an inebriated state, allegedly opened fire on people indiscriminately near Janakantha Bhaban in New Eskaton area, leaving two people, rickshaw-puller Abdul Hakim and Janakantha’s auto-rickshaw driver Yakub-injured with bullets.
Hakim succumbed to his injuries at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on April 15 while Yeakub died at the hospital on April 23.
On April 15, last year, a case was filed with Ramna Model Police Station against unidentified people in this connection. Later the law enforcers arrested Rony from his Dhanmondi residence in connection with the firing on June 1, last year. – Special Correspondent
