A Dhaka court on Sunday fixed April 7 for submission of the charge sheet in the case filed in connection with the murder of journalist couple Sagor Sarwar and Meherun Runi.
Metropolitan Magistrate Yunus Khan of the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Court of Dhaka fixed the new date as the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) missed the deadline of February 28.
Sagor, news editor at the Maasranga Television, and Runi, a senior reporter at the ATN Bangla, were killed at their West Razabazdar house in the capital on February 11, 2012.
The following day, Runi’s brother Nawasher Alam Roman filed the murder case with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station of the city.
At first, a Sub-Inspector of the police station was made the Investigation Officer of the case, and four days after, the responsibility of investigation was shifted to the Detective Branch of Dhaka Metropolitan Police. Later, following a direction of the High Court the responsibility of investigation was given to the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on April 18, 2012.
