Four policemen, including the then inspector (investigation) of Banani Police Station, gave their statements before a tribunal in Dhaka in connection with the Holey Artisan attack case.

All four policemen were present on location, on the night of July 1, 2016. Of them, Wahid and Faruque were injured in the militant attack.

Faruque was severely injured and was flown to Thailand for better treatment. He was there for over four months, he said in his statement.

Judge Majibur Rahman of the Anti-Terrorism Special Tribunal of Dhaka recorded their statements and later lawyers of the accused cross-examined them.

Including them, 40 witnesses have testified before the tribunal on different dates.
