A Barguna tribunal has fixed September 30 to hand down the verdict in the case filed over the murder of Rifat Sharif.
Judge Md Asaduzzaman fixed the date on Wednesday, after hearing the arguments of both sides.
Rifat Sharif was hacked to death by miscreants in front of Barguna Government College in broad daylight on June 26 last year. His wife Ayesha Siddika Minni was nearby the attacking spot. Video clipping shows that she rescued him in a critical condition, boarded a rickshaw and headed towards hospital. Rifat succumbed to injuries.
Later, police identified Minni’s dubious role. On September 1 of the same year, police submitted two charge sheets implicating her and others.
