Charges framed in Saudi diplomat murder case
Dhaka : A Bangladeshi court Wednesday framed charges against five accused in Saudi diplomat Khalaf Al Ali's murder case.
Special public Prosecutor Mohammad Rafiqul Islam told reporters that the court fixed Thursday for starting the trial.
The court framed charges against the fifth accused in absentia and issued an arrest warrant against him, Xinhua reported.
Ali, 45, a second secretary at the Saudi embassy, was shot dead near his house in Dhaka's diplomatic enclave in the wee hours of March 6.
Police said the diplomat's murder was related to street crime.
"Detectives have arrested the four robbery suspects who confessed to the killing of the Saudi diplomat," Mollah Nazrul Islam, a deputy commissioner of police, said.
This is the first time a foreign diplomat was murdered in Bangladesh.
