Police pressed charges on Monday against 14 members of a new faction of banned militant outfit Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (neo-JMB) over the bombing on Hotel Olio International in the city's Panthapath on August 15 in 2017.
The Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) Unit Inspector Raju Ahmed, also Investigation Officer of the case, submitted the charge sheet before the court, said Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court General Recording Officer Sub-Inspector (SI) Shafayatul Islam.
The 14 accused are Akram Hossain Khan Niloy, his parents Abu Turab Khan and Sadia Hosna Lucky, sister Tazrin Khanom Shuvo, Tanvir Yasin Karim, Tanvir's wife Humayra Jakir alias Nabila, Abdullah alias Aichan Kabiraj alias Rafik, Abul Kashem Fakir alias Abu, Nazmul Hasan Mamun, Md Tajul Islam alias Choton alias Mohammad alias Fahim, Tarek Mohammad alias Adnan, Lulu Sarder alias Shahid, Kamrul Islam Khan alias Shakil, and Abdullah.
Sources said Niloy, Nabila, Abu Turab, and Lulu Sarder are the only accused who are yet to give confessional statements. Nabila, Abu Turab,   Sadia, Tajrin, and Tanvir are currently on bail, according to police.     
Four members of a family-Abu Turab Khan, his wife Sadia Hosna Lucky, their son Akram Hosain Niloy, 24, and daughter Tazrin Khanam Shuvo, 29, the police official said.
All of the accused were active members of New JMB, he added.
The case has already been sent to Anti-Terrorism Special Tribunal for hearing, the police official further  said.
Earlier in 2017, a member of New JMB, Saiful Islam, 21, blew himself up at Hotel Olio International on Panthapath, only about 300m away from the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum.
The incident took place just three hours after President Md Abdul Hamid, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, and other high-ups of the government paid their tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at the museum in Dhanmondi on National Mourning Day.
