The court did not state any reason for this delay
A Dhaka court on Sunday deferred the hearing on a petition seeking a travel ban on Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir in a case filed over the rape and murder of college student Mosarat Jahan Munia in a flat in Dhaka’s Gulshan in April this year.
The court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Begum Yasmin Ara set the next hearing for October 27. No reason was given for the delay, according to sources from the court.
The High Court on September 29 refused to grant anticipatory bail to Anvir but granted anticipatory bail to his wife Sabrina Sayem for six weeks.
On April 26, police found the body of the 21-year-old college student Munia, hanging from the ceiling fan of her bedroom in a Gulshan flat.
Munia’s elder sister filed the case on September 6 with a Dhaka court against Anvir over the rape and murder of her sister.
On July 19, Gulshan police station OC Abul Hasan, also the investigating officer of the case, filed the final report to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court.
On August 18, a Dhaka court relieved Anvir from the charge of abetting the suicide of college student Mosarat Jahan Munia.
Metropolitan Magistrate Pranab Kumar Hui passed the order after accepting the police’s probe report that cleared the accused from the charges in the case.
On September 6, Munia’s elder sister filed a case with Dhaka’s 8th Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal against eight persons, including Bashundhara Group Chairman Ahmed Akbar Sobhan, and his son and Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir.
The Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) was asked to deal with the case.
