A Dhaka court has rescheduled for June 25 the submission date of the probe report in the murder case of blogger Avijit Roy. 

Metropolitan Magistrate Golam Nabi fixed the date as police failed to submit the report on Thursday, reports Bangla Tribune. 

Counter Terrorism Unit of police Monirul Islam, who is the investigation officer in the case, could not submit the report, said Shahbagh police station’s registration officer Mahmudur. 

On February 26, 2015, Avijit Roy, a former Buet teacher and founder of Mukto-Mona blog, was hacked to death by unidentified assailants near the Bangla Academy, when he and his wife Rafida Ahmed Bonya were returning from the Ekushey Book Fair. Bonya sustained severe injuries in the attack.  

Avijit’s father Prof Ajoy Roy filed a case with the Shahbagh police following the incident.
