Holey Artisan attack: Court seeks probe report on June 25
A Dhaka court today asked the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police to submit by June 25 the probe report in a case filed over the attack in Holey Artisan Bakery in Gulshan in July 2016.
Metropolitan Magistrate Nurunnahar Yasmin gave the order after CTTC Inspector Humayun Kabir, also the investigation officer of the case, failed to submit the probe report to it by yesterday.
In their statements, the suspected militants, now behind the bars, said they were directly involved in the heinous offence, court sources said.
Gunmen stormed the Holey Artisan Bakery in the capital's Gulshan diplomatic zone on July 1, 2016, and killed 20 hostages, mostly foreign nationals. Two police officials were also killed during the 12-hour hostage standoff.
Later, a case under the Anti-Terrorism Act was filed with Gulshan Police Station.
