A Dhaka court has fixed October 16 to submit the probe report in a case filed over the snatching of two death row convicts from the premises of the Chief Judicial Magistrate Court last year.

The investigation report of the case was scheduled to be submitted on Monday.

However, as the investigating officer did not submit the report, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Farah Diba Chhanda fixed the date.

Death-row convicts Abu Siddiq Sohel and Moinul Hasan Shamim, members of banned militant outfit Ansar-al Islam, were whisked away by their associates by beating police and spraying some chemical on their eyes at Dhaka Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) court arena on November 20, 2022.

Court inspector Md Julhash later filed the case with Kotwali police station.  In the case, seven to eight others were named as unknown suspects.

Abu Siddiq Sohel and Moinul Hasan Shamim were convicted in the murder of publisher Foisal Arefin Dipon.

Dipon was brutally hacked to death at the Jagriti Prokashony office on the second floor of Aziz Super Market in Shahbagh on October 31, 2015. 

A murder case was filed at Shahbagh police station two days later against unidentified assailants.
