A Dhaka court today fixed October 10 for passing an order on a petition seeking travel ban against Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir in a case filed over the rape and murder of a college student in a flat at the capital's Gulshan.
Metropolitan Magistrate Begum Yasmin Ara set the date after a short hearing in presence of Investigation Officer Golam Moktar Md Ashrafuddin of Police Bureau of Investigation
The IO submitted an application on September 13, seeking an order for issuing a travel ban against Anvir.
The Bashundhara MD was sued on charge of committing such offences on September 6. While his father and also chairman of the group Ahmed Akbar Sobhan alias Shah Alam and six others were made accused in the case on charge of abetting the crime.
The six other accused are: Shah Alam's wife Afroza Begum, Anvir's wife Sabrina Sayem, model Faria Mahbub Piyasha, Saifa Rahman Mim, the flat's landlord Ibrahim Ahmed Ripon and his wife Sharmim.
The elder sister of the victim filed the case with the Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal-8 of Dhaka.
After a hearing, Judge Mafroza Parvin on that day took cognizance of the case, recorded the complainant's statements and directed Officer-in-Charge of Gulshan Police Station to register the complaint as a regular case.
The case statements said the victim was raped before death as her private parts contained injuries and blood, while her clothes were torn, which police had mentioned in the inquest report.
