A Dhaka court will deliver the verdict on the case over the murder of Suraiya Akter Risha, a 14-year-old schoolgirl, today (Thursday).

Metropolitan Sessions Court Judge KM Imrul Kayes set the new judgment date last Sunday as the accused Obayedul Khan was not produced before the court.

Obayedul Khan, the lone suspect, is behind bars and had confessed to murdering the girl in court, police had said earlier.

Risha, daughter of businessman Ramjan Hossain of Siddique Bazar, was a student of class eight in Willes Little Flower School.

She was stabbed allegedly by Obayedul, a worker of a tailoring shop in Elephant Road area, on a footbridge outside the school on Aug 24, 2016. She died four days later.
