A Dhaka court on Wednesday directed police to confiscate the properties of two fugitives in the case filed over the Holey Artisan Bakery attack.

The fugitives are Shariful Islam and Mamunur Rashid.

Judge Md Mojibur Rahman of the Anti-Terrorism Special Tribunal in Dhaka passed the order, directing the officers-in-charge (OCs) of police stations concerned to submit reports on its execution by September 30.

On August 8, the tribunal accepted the charge sheet against eight accused, and issued arrest warrants for the two fugitives.

The tribunal also dropped the charges against former private university teacher Abul Hasnat Reza Karim, as the investigation officer did not include his name on the charge sheet.

On July 23, Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit Inspector Humayun Kabir, investigation officer of the case, pressed charges against eight accused.

Six of the accused are behind bars. They are Jahangir Alam alias Rajib Gandhi, Rakibul Hasan Regan, Rashedul Islam alias Rash, Sohel Mahfuz, Mizanur Rahman alias Baro Mizan, and Hadisur Rahman Sagar.

On July 1, 2016, armed militants stormed the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka’s Gulshan and killed 20 hostages, mostly foreign nationals. Two police officials were also killed during the 12-hour standoff.
