Deposition of prosecution witnesses (PW) in the case filed under Explosive Substances Act in connection with the grenade attack on the then British High Commissioner (HC) Anwar Chowdhury and others could not be held yesterday as police failed to produce most of the accused in court.
However, two PWs including gunman of the then deputy commissioner (DC) were present.
Prime accused Huji chief Mufti Abdul Hannan, his brother and three others could not be produced before the court as they were in the capital in connection with some other cases. The Additional District and Sessions Judge Belayet Ullah, also judge of special tribunal, yesterday set October 14 for recording the deposition of PWs.
The grenade attack was made on the premises of Hazrat Shahjalal (RA)'s shrine after Juma prayers on May 21, 2004. The then British High Commissioner and about 50 others were injured while three people were killed. Deputy Commissioner Abul Hossain, who accompanied the High Commissioner, also sustained injuries.
Till date, deposition of only 13 out of 58 PWs have so far been recorded, court sources informed.
Two cases, one for killing and another under Explosive Substances Act were filed in connection with the grenade attack.
