A Dhaka court granted 45 more days to Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to complete the investigation in two cases filed over the Rana Plaza collapse as the department failed to submit the reports yesterday.

Senior Judicial Magistrate Kazi Shahidul Islam asked CID to submit the probe report by September 15.

Meanwhile, the court rejected the bail petitions of seven accused in the two cases.

The accused are: Abdul Khalek, father of Sohel Rana and also owner of Rana Plaza, Refayet Ullah, suspended Savar municipality mayor and BNP leader, engineer Rafiqul Islam, Rana’s relative Abdul Hassan, Bazlus Samad, chairman of New Wave Bottoms, Mahmudur Rahman Tapash, managing director of New Wave Bottoms, and engineer Rakibul Hassan Russel.
On the other hand, Rana is yet to get any lawyer to defend him as per decision from Dhaka Bar Association, Additional Public Prosecutor Anwarul Kabir Babul told The Daily Star yesterday.

The court, however, placed BNP leader Refayet Ullah on a one-day remand for interrogation in the case filed for violating building code.
