A Dhaka court has set October 9 to submit a probe report in a case lodged under anti-terror act over law enforcing agency’s raid at a militant den in Dhaka’s Ashkona area in 2016.

Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Aminul Huq passed the order as investigation agency Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of police failed to submit the report on Tuesday.

CTTC conducted the raid “Operation Ripple 24” at a militant hideout in Ashkona, in Dhaka’s Uttarkhan area on December 24, 2016.

Two militants were killed and another two female militants surrendered during the incident.

Dakkhinkhan police station Sub-Inspector Shahinul Islam filed the case against nine people the next day.

The accused are: Zebennuhar Shila, Trisha Moni, Shakira, Samina, Afifa Kaderi, Mainul Islam, Rashedur Rahman, Selim and Firoz.
