A Dhaka court on Monday suspended the operation of the arrest warrants issued on Sunday against former prime minister and Awami League chief Sheikh Hasina and two others in connection with the Paltan killings on October 28 last year.
Metropolitan Magistrate Mir Ali Reza passed the order following a petition submitted by the investigation officer (IO) of the case seeking further investigation into the case and suspension of operation of the arrest warrants against Hasina and two others.
The court also directed the IO to probe the matter and fixed May 28 for submission of the probe report. In the meantime Sheikh Hasina has stayed back in London after the refusal by the British Airways to issue her a boarding pass to Dhaka following restrictions on her entry in Bangladesh . Hasina says she will fight for her right to enter the country.
