The case lodged over killing of Taslima Begum Renu in a mob beating in the capital's North Badda area in 2019 has been shifted to Dhaka Metropolitan Session Judges Court for starting the trial.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mamunur Rashid on Monday transferred the case to the court.
Sub-Inspector Mazharul Islam, general registration officer of Badda police station, confirmed the matter, reports Jago News.
He said, "The court ordered the case to be transferred to the Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge's court for trial."
Earlier on Wednesday, the court ordered the only fugitive accused, Mohiuddin, to send to jail. On that day, Mohiuddin surrendered before the court of Dhaka Additional Metropolitan Magistrate Asaduzzaman Noor and applied for bail. However, after the hearing, the court rejected his bail plea and sent him to jail.
A mob bludgeoned Renu, 40, a single-mother of two, to death suspecting her a child lifter, in front of North Badda Government Primary School in the morning on 20 July, 2019.
It was later learned that Renu went there to take information regarding admission of her daughter Tahsin Tuba, 4, at that school.
Police, after scrutinising the vicious video clippings of the incident, managed to arrest almost all the culprits, including Ria Khatun, 35, who started the ruckus by terming Renu a child lifter, and Ibrahim Hossain Hridoy, the man who was seen most active in beating Renu, even thrashing her seemingly lifeless body.
Her nephew Syed Nasir Uddin filed a case against 400 to 500 unidentified people with Badda Police Station.
Renu, who hailed from Raipur upazila of Lakshmipur district, resided in the capital's Mohakhali area with her five-year-old daughter Tuba and 12-year-old son Tahsin. She had been divorced by her husband two years before the incident.
