A Dhaka court on Wednesday deferred the hearing on charge framing against Erfan Selim, son of Awami League MP Haji Md Salim, and four others till December 9 in a case filed over the assault of an officer of Bangladesh Navy in Dhaka.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Muhammad Asaduzzaman Nur set the fresh date as Erfan's lawyer Pran Nath sought more time as he could not prepare for the hearing of the charges due to not having the necessary documents in hand.

The court also granted to bail Awami League lawmaker Haji Mohammad Salim's son Mohammad Erfan Selim in the case.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Muhammad Asaduzzaman Nur passed the order after Erfan along with his lawyer Pran Nath appeared before it, seeking bail in the case.

On February 11 last year, Sub-Inspector Mominul Haque of the Detective Branch of police, also the investigation officer of the case, submitted the charge sheet against Erfan Selim and four others to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court of Dhaka.

On October 25 last year, a video of Lieutenant Wasif Ahmad Khan of Bangladesh Navy demanding justice in public went viral on social media after he was assaulted by Erfan, his bodyguard, chauffeur, and a few accomplices.

The attack took place at the Kalabagan bus stop area at around 7:45pm, when the military officer protested after his motorcycle was hit by Erfan's car, which had a parliament sticker on it.

A day later, a case was filed with Dhanmondi police station accusing the four people.

Erfan was later arrested and jailed for a year after a raid by a mobile court found walkie-talkies and alcohol in his house, causing him to be suspended as councillor of Ward No 30 of Dhaka South City Corporation.
