Four cops give depositions

The recording of statements of prosecution witnesses in a case filed in connection with the grenade attack on British High Commissioner Anwar Choudhury continued in the Speedy Trial Tribunal of Sylhet division for the second day yesterday.
The grenade attack took place at the shrine of Hazrat Shahjalal (RA) in Sylhet after Juma prayers on May 21 in 2004, killing three people and injuring 70 others.
Four policemen, who were on duty at the place of occurrence at that time, gave their depositions yesterday. With them, a total of five witnesses, out of 57, gave their statements in the court.
Statements of some other witnesses will be recorded today and tomorrow, court sources said.
On July 31, Additional District & Sessions Judge Ferdous Ahmed framed charges against four accused in the case. Later, the case was transferred to the Speedy Trial Tribunal.
The accused are Harkat ul Jihad chief Mufti Abdul Hannan, his brother Mofizur Rahman and Huji operatives Delwar Hossain Ripon and Sharif Shahedul Alam alias Bipul.
