The fourth prosecution witness of the Bishwajit Das murder case yesterday said he had heard on December 9, 2012 around 10:00am that Bishwajit had been stabbed by some people from a procession and was taken to Mitford Hospital for treatment.
Sometime later, he found Bishwajit dead in the hospital, said Abdul Jabbar, employee of a tailoring shop Biswajit's elder brother owns, while giving his statement before Speedy Trial Tribunal-4.
Some Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activists allegedly stabbed Biswajit, 24, proprietor of Amantron Tailors in the capital, to death during a road blockade programme of the BNP-led 18-party alliance that day.
Sub-inspector Md Jalal Uddin of Sutrapur Police Station, the case's complainant, and two others had given their statements before the court. Judge ABM Nizamul Haque fixed July 31 for the next hearing.
The court framed charges against 21 Jagannath University unit BCL activists on June 2.
Inspector Tajul Islam of Detective Branch of police, investigating the case, submitted the charge sheet before the Court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Dhaka on March 5.
