A Dhaka court on Sunday ordered to confiscate property of fugitive accused Mahin Uddin in a case lodged over killing of Taslima Begum Renu in a mob beating in North Badda area in the capital in 2019.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mamunur Rashid passed the order this morning.
The court also fixed 1 February for next hearing.
A mob bludgeoned Renu, 40, a single-mother of two, to death suspecting her a child lifter, in front of North Badda Government Primary School in the morning on 20 July last year.
It was later learned that Renu went there to take information regarding admission of her daughter Tahsin Tuba, 4, at that school.
Renu's nephew Nasir Uddin filed the case with Badda Police Station against 400-500 unidentified people.
Police, after scrutinising the vicious video clippings of the incident, managed to arrest almost all the culprits, including Ria Khatun, 35, who started the ruckus by terming Renu a child lifter, and Ibrahim Hossain Hridoy, the man who was seen most active in beating Renu, even thrashing her seemingly lifeless body.
