Judge Zakir Hossain of Dhaka's Speedy Trial Tribunal-2 on Thursday asked retired police inspector Farid Uddin to produce the case docket by that date. 

On Friday, the tribunal's Assistant Public Prosecutor (APP) Sadia Afrin Shilpi confirmed the information to Daily Bangladesh. 

She said that Farid Uddin took the case docket from the PP office on June 2, 2005. The case docket has not been found since then. Farid Uddin is none of this case. Farid Uddin came to the court and said that he could not find the case docket. The judge ordered him to find the case docket. The public prosecutor has been asked to assist him in this.
