Six of the accused are Jahangir Alam alias Rajib Gandhi, Rashedul Islam alias Rash, Sohel Mahfuz alias Hatkata Mahfuz, Rakibul Islam Reagan, Mizanur Rahman alias Boro Mizan, and Hadisur Rahman Sagor.

On Sunday, the case docket was submitted to this special tribunal.

Police pressed charges against eight people in the sensational case on July 23.

Twenty-two people – nine Italians, seven Japanese, one Indian, one Bangladeshi-born American and four Bangladeshis – were killed by five gunmen after they stormed the restaurant on July 1, 2016.
