The Anti-Terrorism Special Tribunal has set August 22 for starting the hearing on charge framing against eight militants of banned militant outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) in a case lodged over murder of publisher Faisal Arefin Dipan in 2016.

On March 19, the tribunal accepted the charge sheet filed in the case and issued an arrest warrant against fugitives -- former army major Syed Ziaul Haque, and Akram Hossain. 

On November 15, Detective Branch Assistant Police Commissioner Fazlur Rahman, also the investigation officer of the case, filed the charge sheet against the eight accused. 

The accused are: former army officer Ziaul Haque, and Moinul Hasan Shamim, Md Abdus Sabur, Khairul Islam, Md Abu Siddique Sohel, Md Mozammel Hossain Saimon, Md Sheikh Abdullah, and Akram Hossain alias Hasib.
