A Dhaka court has fixed March 21 for the bail hearing of Syed Ashfaqul Haque, executive editor of Daily Star, and his wife Tania Khandaker in a case filed over the death of a domestic help due to negligence.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Mohammad Assam Jaglul Hossain fixed the date after holding a hearing on Thursday.

On February 13, the Metropolitan Magistrate of Dhaka granted a four-day remand to the accused.

Preeti had been working at the house of Ashfaqul for two years.

Preeti’s father Lokesh Urang filed a case under 304(A) of Penal Code after her death.
