A Dhaka court on Wednesday set February 20 to submit probe report in a case lodged over the killing of one Taslima Begum Renu in a mob beating in North Badda area in the capital. 

As the investigation officer failed to submit the report today, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Ziaur Rahman passed the order this morning.

On July 20, 2019, 40-year-old Taslima Begum Renu, a single mother of two, was brutally beaten to death by a mob on suspicion of being a child lifter, in front of North Badda Government Primary School. It had been later known that Renu went there to take information regarding admission of her four-year-old daughter Tahsin Tuba at that school.

Nasir Uddin, the nephew of Renu, filed the case with Badda Police Station against 400-500 unidentified people.

Scrutinizing the vicious video clippings of the incident, police 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.
