Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) filed the charge sheet to Chittagong Senior Judicial Magistrate Court, Lt Col Miftah Uddin Ahmad, commanding officer of Rab-7, told our Chittagong correspondent.
The Supreme Court lawyer was arrested from capital Dhaka’s Dhanmondi area in February along with two other lawyers for funding a Chittagong-based militant outfit. She is also an accused in another case over militancy funding.
