A Dhaka court is scheduled to pronounce judgement on Sunday in a case filed over the deaths of college students Abdul Karim Razib and Dia Khanam Mim in a road accident in the capital’s Airport Road area in July 2018. 

Earlier on November 14, Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Imrul Qayes fixed December 1 to pass the verdict as both defence and the prosecution concluded their arguments in the case on that day. 

Earlier, the court examined 37 witnesses including investigation officer (IO) Qazi Shariful Islam of the total 41 witnesses.

The IO on September 6, 2018, filed charge sheet in the case. 

On July 29, 2018, two students - Razib and Dia - of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin Cantonment College were run over during a mad race between two buses of Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan on Dhaka’s Airport Road.

Agitated people torched the two buses and triggered a widespread protest by the students demanding justice for their fellows and road safety.  Dia’s father Jahangir Hossain Fakir filed the case with Cantonment Police Station to this end.
