The police on Saturday filed the charge sheet in the case of the grenade attack on the British high commissioner, Anwar Choudhury, accusing the Islamist outfit Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami of carrying out the attack three years ago in which three were killed and 70, including the envoy, were injured.
Senior assistant superintendent of the Criminal Investigation Department Munshi Atiqur Rahman, also the investigation officer, submitted the charge sheet to a Sylhet magistrate’s court accusing four operatives of the outfit.
The names of two leaders of the outfit, Ahsan Ullah Hasan alias Kajol, who died in 2006, and Abu Zandal alias Mufti Moin still at large, were dropped from the charge sheet.
Others accused are Bangladesh chapter Harkatul operation commander Mufti Abdul Hannan, his younger brother Mafizur Rahman Ovi alias Mohibullah, Sharif Shahedul Alam Bipul and Delwar Hussain Ripon. All are now in jail.
