A Chitttagong court will hear the charge-framing in an arms case filed over the killing of former Police Super Babul Akhter’s wife Mahmuda Khanam Mitu on November 13.
Metropolitan Session’s Judge Md Shahe Nur fixed the date on Thursday, said Metropolitan Public Prosecutor Advocate Md Fakhruddin Chowdhury.
Investigation officer of the case sub-inspector Mohim Uddin submitted a charge-sheet before the court on July 28 against arms supplier Ehtesamul Haque Bhola and rickshaw-puller Monir Hossain.
Bhola was arrested on June 27 while Monir the following day. Police also seized the arm used for the killing of Mitu from Monir’s possession.
A case was filed with Bakalia Police Station against Bhola and Monir after the arm was recovered.
On June 5, unidentified miscreants gunned down Mitu at the city's GEC intersection while she went there to drop her son, Mahir Akhter, 7, for a bus to Chittagong Cantonment Public School and College.
