The court in the past three years has extended the submission date 43 times as the CTTC has failed to file the investigation report

A Dhaka court once again extended the probe report submission date for writer and blogger Avijit Roy’s murder case, and fixed it afresh for March 25.

Metropolitan Magistrate, Md Sarafuzzaman Ansary, gave the order after the inspector of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) Unit, Md Monirul Islam, also investigation officer of the case, failed to submit the probe report scheduled for Sunday.

The court in the past three years has extended the submission date 43 times as the CTTC has failed to file the investigation report.
