A Dhaka court has deferred the submission date of a probe report on sabotage charges against 14 people — including BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia.

Dhaka Metropolitan Hakim Devdas Chandra Adhikari passed the order of the new date, May 14, on Thursday.

General Recording Officer (GRO) of CMM court, Sub-Inspector (SI) Md Rakibul Hasan confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

He said: "The investigation report of the case was to be provided on Thursday. However, the investigation officer of the Gulshan police station did not submit the report, thus the court has set a new date."

According to case files, Muktijoddha Parishad rallied its members to besiege Khaleda Zia’s office in Gulshan on February 16, 2015. When around 30,000 people gathered to surround the premises under the leadership of Shipping Minister Shahjahan Khan, improvised bombs were hurled at them.

Dhaka Janbahon Union General Secretary Ismail Hossain Bachchu filed a case in this regard.

Prominent suspects in the case include BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, Vice-chairperson Selima Rahman and BNP leader Khandakar Mahabubur Rahman.
