Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Nurunnahar Yasmin fixed the date

A Dhaka court on Thursday set June 25 for submission of the probe report in a case filed over the barbaric Holey Artisan Cafe attack in 2016. 

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Nurunnahar Yasmin fixed the date as case investigation officer Humayun Kabir failed to submit the probe report on Thursday.

On the night of July 1, 2016, five militants stormed into Holey Artisan Cafe and Bakery in Dhaka’s  posh Gulshan area and took several dozen people, including 18 foreigners, hostage.

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 and slit their throats inside the restaurant.

Two police officials were also shot dead when they tried to rescue the hostages.

A case was filed with Gulshan police station in connection with the attack.

Later, the case was transferred to the Detective Branch of Dhaka Metropolitan Police.
