Sagar-Runi Murder

Rab fails 74th deadline to submit probe report

Court directs to turn it in by Nov 22

A Dhaka court yesterday again asked Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) to submit the probe report of a case filed over  murder of journalist couple Sagar Sarowar and Meherun Runi by November 22.

With yesterday's date, the investigation officer has so far taken 75 dates to complete investigation.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Chowdhury passed the order after Rab Additional Superintendent Khondoker Shafiqul Alam, also investigation officer of the case, failed to submit the report yet again yesterday.

Earlier on November 11 last year, the High Court expressed disappointment at the lack of significant progress in investigation.

Sagar, news editor at private TV channel Maasranga, and his wife Runi, a senior reporter at ATN Bangla, were killed in the early hours of February 11, 2012 in their rented flat at the capital's West Razabazar.

After Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police and the Detective Branch of police, Rab was tasked with the probe on April 18, 2012.
