Mr Sultan Mahmud the learned prosecutor concluded cross examination of DW3 Qayum Reza Chowdhury
An application on behalf of the defence has been filed praying for permission to submit addiational documents in support of the defence case, Teh defence side also filed another supplementary application for submitting additional documents as mentioned in the application.
Mr AKM Fakrul Islam, the learned counsel for the defence submits that the defence could not file some documents at the time of initial stage on behalf of the defence in the Tribunal. The learned counsel further submits that the defence may kindly be permitted to submit the documents mentioned in the applications otherwise the defence will be prejudiced in the trial.
Mr Zead-Al-Malum the learned prosecutor vehemently opposes the application for submitting additional documents on behalf of the defence on the ground that there is no provision in the Act of 1973 to file any additional document on behealf of the defence during trial stage and as such this application is liable to be rejected for want of provision of law.
We have perused the application praying for submitting additional documents supported by supplementary application for the same purpose filed by the defense. It is an admitted fact that there is no provision to file additional documents on beahlf of the defence during trial. Despite of this fact, for the ends of justice, we are inclined to give permission to the defence to submit additional documents and accordingly, the defence is permitted to submit the additional documents as mentioned in the application and these documents be kept with the documents filed earlier by the defense.
Mr AKM Fakrul Islam the learned counsel by filing an application submits that he could not prodcue DW4 today as his witness is not available and as such he prays for an adjournment to produce defence witnesses. Thus the adjournment prayer is also allowed as a last chance.
Let the case be fixed on 23.07.2013 for examination of DW4.
