A Dhaka court has extended till August 7 the deadline for submission of the probe report in a case filed over the killing of journalist couple Sagar Sarowar and Meherun Runi in February 2012.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shafi Uddin passed the order on Thursday – making it the 99th extension of the deadline – after the Rapid Action Battalion's investigating officer failed to submit the report.

Alamgir, the general registration officer of Sher-e-Bangla police station of the court, gave this information.

Eight people, including Runi's friend Tanvir Rahman have been accused in the case.

The seven other suspects are Rafiqul Islam, Bakul Mia, Abu Syed, Mintu alias Baggira Mintu alias Masum Mintu, Quamrul Hasan alias Arun, security guard Enam Ahmed alias Humayun Kabir and Palash Rudra Pal.

Sagar, news editor at the private TV channel Maasranga, and his wife, Runi, senior reporter at ATN Bangla, were killed on February 11, 2012, in their rented flat in the capital's West Razabazar area. Their only son, Mahir Sarowar Megh, then 5, was home at that time. 

Nousher Ali Roman, brother of Runi, filed a case at Sher-e-Bangla police station the following day in connection with the murders.
