A Dhaka tribunal yesterday fixed September 28 for delivering the judgement of an arms case against Regent Group Chairman Mohammad Shahed on completion of the trial within seven working days.
Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Special Tribunal-1 of Dhaka fixed the date after defence lawyers completed their arguments.
During yesterday's hearing, the defence sought acquittal of their client from the case. They told the court that the prosecution has failed to prove the charges brought against him.
Shahed was arrested on July 15 from Satkhira when he was trying to leave the country on a boat.
On July 19, a team of DB police found Shahed's private car in front of a house in Sector-11, in the city's Uttara Paschim area. They then seized a pistol with a round of bullets from the car and later a case under the Arms Act was filed against him.
DB Inspector Md Sairul Islam on July 30 submitted the charge sheet to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's Court of Dhaka, showing 13 people as prosecution witnesses.
