Staff Correspondent: The High Court (HC) will deliver its verdict on August 6 over the death references and appeals in the sensational Biswajit Das murder.

A bench of Justice Md Ruhul Quddus and Justice Bhishmadev Chakrabortty fixed the date on Monday after concluding hearing on the death references and appeals.

On December 18, 2013, a Dhaka court sentenced eight activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League, the student wing of ruling Awami League, to death and 13 others to life imprisonment for killing tailor-shop employee Biswajit Das.

Fourteen appeals were filed with the HC by the convicts challenging the lower court verdict against them in the case.

Biswajit, 24, was hacked to death in public on his way to his tailoring shop at Shakharibazar in Old Dhaka during a countrywide road-blockade programme on December 9, 2012.
