The court allowed time plea to the prosecution

An anti-terror special court has adjourned till May 20 the hearing of a case lodged over the militant attack in the capital’s Holey Artisan Bakery in 2016.

Judge Md Mujibur Rahman of Dhaka Anti-terrorism Special Tribunal set the date yesterday, allowing a time plea to the prosecution as the jail authorities could not produce the accused before the court, reports BSS.

Militants killed 20 people, most of them foreigners, in the attack carried out on July 1, 2016.

Two police officials valiantly laid down their lives while trying to save people in the restaurant. Later, five militants were killed in a commando operation.

Police filed the case under an anti-terror act with Gulshan police station. The trial was initiated on November 26, 2018 by framing charges against the eight accused — Jahangir Alam alias Rajib alias Gandhi, Rakibul Hasan Regan, Rashedul Islam alias Rash, Sohel Mahfuz, Mizanur Rahman alias Boro Mizan, Hadisur Rahman Sagar, Shariful Islam and Mamunur Rashid.
