A Dhaka court has fixed September 28 for delivering its verdict against Regent Hospital owner Mohammad Shahed, alias Shahed Karim, in an arms case filed with Uttara police station.

Judge KM Imrul Kayesh of the Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge's Court set the date after concluding the argument hearing of both prosecution and defence in the case on Sunday.

Public Prosecutor Md Abdullah Abu represented the state at the hearing.

During the hearing, police produce Shahed before the court.

Earlier on August 19, the same court took the charge sheet into cognizance in the case.

All the case documents, including the charge sheet, have been shifted to Metropolitan Session Judge Court in Dhaka for starting trial of the case.

DB Inspector Syrul Islam, the investigation officer of the case, said 14 people had been named in the charge sheet as prosecution witnesses, including the complainant.
