The date of submitting the probe report in the journalist couple Sagar-Runi murder case has been deferred for the 96th time, reports UNB.

Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Rashedul Alam fixed 9 April for the submission of the investigation report during a hearing after investigating agency Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) didn't submit the report today (Sunday).

Maasranga Television news editor Sagar Sarowar and his wife ATN Bangla senior reporter Meherun Runi were found dead in their rented apartment in the city's West Rajabazar area on 11 February 2012.

Nousher Ali Roman, brother of Runi, filed a case with Sher-e-Banglanagar Police the following day.

First, the sub-inspector (SI) of the police station was investigating the case. After four days, the investigation of this sensational murder case was handed over to the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DB).

After more than two months of investigation, DB failed to figure out the motive behind the murders. Later, on the order of the High Court, the investigation of the murder case was handed over to RAB on 18 April of the same year.

Law enforcers have so far arrested eight people in connection with the murder case.
