Earlier, on November 12, the court had fixed February 25, 2016 for submission of the report.
On February 27, 2014, Public Prosecutor (PP) Asaduzzaman Khan Rochi appealed to the court seeking further investigation in the case, while the court acceded to his plea and directed the CID to conduct further investigation.
Manzoor was the commander of Sector-8 during the Liberation War. He was killed at the Chittagong Cantonment on June 1, 1981, two days after the assassination of the then President Ziaur Rahman.
