A Rangpur court will deliver verdict on February 28 in a case filed against eight members of banned militant outfit JMB in connection with killing Japanese national Kunio Hoshi.
Rangpur Special Court Judge Noresh Chandra Sarker today fixed the date after concluding hearing arguments of the prosecution and defence lawyers in the killing case, our local correspondent reports quoting Rathish Chandra Bhowmik, public prosecutor of the court.
Kunio Hoshi was shot dead by three unidentified assailants at Aluwari village in Kaunia upazila of Rangpur on October 3, 2015.
Later, Abdul Quader Zilani, officer-in-charge of Kaunia Police Station and investigation officer of the case pressed charges against eight Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) men on July 3 last year.
