Sagar-Runi murder probe report deferred for 92nd time

A Dhaka court on Monday (Sep 26) asked Rapid Action Battalion to submit by October 31 the probe report of the murder case of journalist couple Sagar Sarowar and Meherun Runi.

With this, the deadline for submission of the report has been rescheduled for the 92nd time.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Debdash Chandra Adhikary passed the order after Rab Additional Superintendent of Police Khondoker Md Shafiqul Alam, also the investigation officer of the case, failed to submit the report yesterday, court sources said.

Sagar, news editor at private TV channel Maasranga, and his wife Runi, senior reporter at ATN Bangla, were killed in the early hours of February 11, 2012, in their rented flat in the capital's West Razabazar.

After Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police and the Detective Branch of police, Rab was tasked with the probe on April 18, 2012.
