The charge sheet in blogger Avijit Roy murder case will be submitted next month, says Md Monirul Islam, Chief of the Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC), on Saturday.
The CTTC Chief told a media, "We will submit the charge sheet of the case to the court after completing all necessary formalities accusing 10 people of which three have already been confessed their involvement in the killing."
Those who gave confessional statements before the court are-Shahriar alias Saymon, a computer engineering graduate from the Sylhet University of Science and Technology (SUST), Abu Siddique alias Sohel and Arafat Hossain alias Shams.
Monirul, also an Additional Commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), said, "All the three accused narrated the whole story of the killing including planning, motivation, training and execution and disclosed the names of 10 people including Farabi, an abettor who instigated the killers through Facebook campaign."
Major Zia and three others who gave confessional statement to the court were seen in the video footage before and the day of the killing of Avijit Roy, the CTTC Chief added.
Md Saiful Islam, Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) of the CTTC, said, "Police so far arrested four accused and identified sacked Major Zia, one Akram Hossain of Dhaka, Mukul Rana, a BA Honours student of Jashore and Selim after scrutinizing the closed circuit cameras (CCC) set up in and outside the Bangla Academy."
Mukul Rana was killed in an encounter with RAB in Jashore in 2016 and fugitive Akram has already been charged with another blogger Ashiqur murder case, Saiful said adding that they are trying to nab two more accused of the killing.
The case was transferred to the CTTC from the Detective Branch (DB) of police in December in 2016 and CTTC Inspector Monir Hossain has been appointed as its Investigation Officer (IO).
US-based Bangladeshi blogger Avijit Roy was murdered near the Teacher-Student Centre (TSC) of Dhaka University by a gang of assailants in an attack that also left his wife severely wounded on February 26 of 2015.
