The probe committee investigating the killing of retired major Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan has sought seven more days to submit its report.

Mizanur Rahman, head of the probe committee formed by the home ministry, said that they had submitted the application to the ministry seeking time on Thursday.

On Sunday, Mizanur said that they would be able to submit their report by the government fixed August 23 after a public hearing in this connection at the office of Shamlapur Rohingya camp-in-charge in Teknaf.

Sinha, 36, who took early retirement from the Bangladesh Army in 2018, was shot dead at a police checkpoint on Cox’s Bazar-Teknaf Marine Drive at Shamlapur under Teknaf upazila in Cox’s Bazar on July 31.

The home ministry formed a four-member committee headed by additional divisional commissioner of Chattogram Mohammad Mizanur Rahman to probe into the matter.
