A Khulna court has set October 10 to frame charges against Mamunul Haque, former joint secretary general of Hefazat-e-Islam, in a case filed under the Explosive Substances Act.

Khulna’s Additional Metropolitan Sessions Court Judge SM Ashikur Rahman announced the date on Sunday after Mamunul was brought before the court from Khulna district jail, said public prosecutor advocate KM Iqbal Hossain.

According to the charge sheet, a demonstration of around 3,000 members of 12 parties including Jamaat-e-Islam, BNP and Hefazat took place in Khulna on February 22, 2013 demanding abolition of the International Crimes Tribunal and release of the arrested war criminals and chanting anti-government slogans.

Headed towards the Gonojagoron Moncho in the city, the procession at one point faced police obstruction and started attacking the police with molotov cocktails and gun fires.

Later in the day, Sub-Inspector of Sonadanga police station Alamgir Kabir filed a case against 26 people including Mamunul Haque.

Mamunul had directed his followers to vandalize Gonojagoron Moncho and launch attack on police during a waz mahfil held at Moylapota mosque roundabout a day before the attack.

The charge sheet was submitted on April 21, 2015 by Investigation Officer SI Md Moktar Hossain against 107 people.
