A Sylhet court has fixed March 8 for delivering the verdict in the case file in connection with attempted murder of college girl Khaidza Akter Nargis.
Sylhet Metropolitan Session Judge Akbar Hossain Mridha fixed the date Sunday afternoon.
Additional Public Prosecutor Mafuzul Hossain confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune.
Khadiza, 23, daughter of Mashuk Miah of Biswanath upazila and a student of Sylhet Govt Women’s College, was stabbed repeatedly by Badrul Alam on her way home from college on October 3, 2016.
Badrul hacked Khadiza mercilessly after she reportedly rejected his offer to have an affair with him.
Hearing the victim’s screams, locals rescued Khadiza and caught Badrul from the spot and handed him over to police after giving him a good thrashing.

The court indicted lone accused Badrul on November 29, the same year.
