At least 1,136 people were killed and over 2,500 injured in the building collapse

A Dhaka court has set November 20 to hold hearing of a murder case lodged over the Rana Plaza tragedy.

Wednesday was initially fixed to start recording testimonies of the witnesses in the case, but Dhaka District and Session Judge Md Helal Uddin reset the date allowing a time plea of the defence.

At least 1,136 people, mostly garment workers, were killed and over 2,500 injured in the building collapse on April 24, 2013. 

Then Sub-Inspector (SI) of Savar Model Police Station Wali Ashraf filed the case, accusing of death by negligence and fault in constructing the building. 

Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Assistant Superintendant Bijay Krishna Kar on April 26, 2015 filed charge sheet against 41, including the building owner Sohel Rana. He made 594 people witnesses in the case.

Dhaka District and Session Judge SM Quddus Zaman on July 18, 2016 framed charges against the accused.
