The submission date for the probe report of the Sagar-Runi murder case has been deferred for the 76th time.

A Dhaka court on Sunday directed Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) again to submit probe report by December 29 in the sensational murder case of journalist couple Sagar Sarowar and Meherun Runi.

Metropolitan Rajesh Chowdhury passed the order as the RAB Assistant Superintendent of Police Mohiuddin Ahamed, also investigation officer of the case, failed to submit probe report on Sunday, the scheduled day its submission.

Till now, the Sagar-Runi murder trial probe report has been deferred 76 times.

On February 12, 2012, Maasranga Television News Editor Sagar Sarowar and ATN Bangla Senior Reporter Meherun Runi were stabbed to death in their rented flat in Dhaka’s West Razabazar neighbourhood.

Following the murder, Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police started an investigation into the case filed in this connection.

Later, the case was shifted to Detective Branch of Police. However, on April 18, 2012, the High Court, in an order, shifted the case to RAB for investigation as the former had expressed its inability to resolve the case.

At least eight people including their “family friend” Tanveer Rahman were arrested in connection with the killings.

Tanveer was released on bail later but the others are still in jail.
