Plot to kill Hasina: Verdict on Sunday


PV Desk : A Dhaka court is set to deliver on Sunday its verdict over an assassination attempt on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina 17 years ago.
Dhaka’s Second Speedy Trial Tribunal judge Mamtaj Begum will deliver the verdict.
On Jul 20 of 2000, police found two 76-kilogram bombs in a school field at Kotalipara where Hasina, on her first term as prime minister, was scheduled to address an election campaign rally.
Of the 25 accused in the two cases filed over an attempted murder and explosives, Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami chief Mufti Hannan has already been executed in another case.
