Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Md Asaduzzaman Mia has said the charge sheet in the case over the 2016 attack in Gulshan’s Holey Artisan Bakery will be submitted within a month.

“We are taking time to cautiously prepare a flawless charge sheet in the Holey Artisan attack case and it will take one more month,” he said at a meeting on law and order and traffic management ahead of the Eid-ul-Fitr holidays at the Mohakhali Bus Terminal on Tuesday.

On the night of July 1, 2016, five militants stormed into Holey Artisan Bakery 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 brutally murdered by the militants. Two policemen were also shot dead when they tried to rescue the hostages.

A case was filed at Gulshan police station over the attack. It was transferred to DMP’s Detective Branch later.

A Dhaka court on May 17 set June 25 for submission of the probe report in the case, after case investigation officer Humayun Kabir failed to submit it that day.

Warning against extra fare

The DMP chief at Tuesday’s meeting sounded a note of warning of taking tougher action against charging extra fare from passengers.

“We will no more tolerate any passenger harassment ahead of the Eid,” he said.

Talking about the success of coordinated security arrangements ahead of the Eid, Asaduzzaman also said: “No significant crime such as snatching, mugging and extortion has taken place in the capital in the last 26 days of the holy Ramadan.”

“No vehicles will be allowed to leave the bus terminals without verifying driving license and other necessary papers,” he said.
