Court seeks Gulshan café attack probe report by Aug 27

A Dhaka court asked on Sunday the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit to submit probe report on Gulshan Holey Artisan Café attack case by August 27.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Nurunnahar Yesmin passed the order as CTTC inspector Humayun Kabir, also the investigation officer (IO) of the case, failed to submit probe report on Sunday, reports UNB.

Earlier, the court asked police several times to submit the report.

On the evening of July 1, 2016, five militants entered the Holy Artisan Café and Bakery with crude bombs, machetes, pistols, and took several dozen people hostages, including 18 foreigners.

Twenty hostages — nine Italians, seven Japanese, one Indian, one Bangladesh-born American and two Bangladeshis — were killed as the militants sprayed them with bullets indiscriminately or cut their throats to confirm their death inside the café.

Besides, two senior police officers — Banani Police Station then officer-in-charge Salauddin Ahmed Khan and Detective Branch assistant commissioner Robiul Islam — were shot dead when police tried to gain control of the bakery.

A case was filed with Gulshan police station in connection with the worst terror attack. Later, the case was transferred to the Detective Branch of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP).
