Cafe attack chargesheet soon: DMP chief

PV Desk : The investigation into the 2016 attack on an upscale restaurant in Dhaka is almost complete after the recent arrest of the alleged bomb supplier, says a senior police officer.

Investigators have gleaned ‘substantial information’ from the suspect and the chargesheet will be filed with the court soon, Dhaka Metropolitan Police chief Asaduzzaman Mia told reporters.

“The post-mortem and forensic reports came in recently. The investigation is at its final stages,” said Mia.

On Jul 8, counterterrorism police arrested a man in the northern district of Chapainawabganj, who they say supplied the grenades used in the terror attack.

Police have been looking for Soheil Mahfuz since the attack on the Holey Artisan Bakery, when terrorists killed 20 diners, including 17 foreigners.
