Earlier the hearing date was on Tuesday

A Dhaka court on Tuesday set November 12 as the hearing date for charge framing in a case lodged over the death of Dhaka Residential Model College student Nayeemul Abrar Rahat, against 10 people including the editor of daily Prothom Alo Motiur Rahman.

Tuesday was fixed for passing the order in the case, but Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayesh adjourned the hearing till November 12 as the order has not yet been ready to be passed.

Ninth grader Naimul Abrar Rahat died after being electrocuted behind the stage during an event organized by the Kishor Alo, a publication of the Prothom Alo, at Dhaka Residential Model College ground on November 1, 2019.

On November 6, 2019, Rahat’s father Mojibur Rahman filed the case with the court in this connection.

On October 13 this year, the court set Tuesday to pass the indictment order as counsel of the plaintiff Advocate Omar Faruk Asif concluded his part of the hearing on charge framing on that day. 

The defence also took part in hearing on their plea to acquit eight accused including Motiur Rahman and Anisul Hoque from the case.

After hearing both the sides, the court had set Tuesday to give verdict on charge framing.

The court on October 1 had accepted the probe report in the case. Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jasim on September 20 transferred the case to this court as it was ready to hold trial.

The other nine accused are - Editor of Kishor Alo, a publication of the Prothom Alo, Anisul Hoque, Prothom Alo Senior Sub-editor Mohitul Alam, Head of event and activation Kabir Bakul, Executives Shah Paran Tushar and Shuvashish Pramanik and Jasim Uddin, Mosharraf Hossain, Sujon and Kamrul Hawlader, who were in charge of providing electricity supply for the function.

The court on September 3 granted bail to Anisul Hoque, Mohitul Alam, Kabir Bakul, Shah Paran Tushar and Shuvashish Pramanik in the case. 

It came up with the order as the accused surrendered before the court and pleaded for bail in the case.

The court had come up with that order a day after it directed the authorities concerned to attach the properties of those five accused.
