Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Devdas Chandra Adhikari passed the order after RAB failed to submit the probe report on the scheduled day.

With the latest deferment, the investigation officers have so far taken 81 dates to complete the probe but there is no progress of the probe till now.

According to the case, Sagar Sarwar, news editor at private TV channel Maasranga, and his wife Meherun Runi, a senior reporter at ATN Bangla, were killed in the early hours of February 11, 2012 .
