Earlier on July 2, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court vacated its order staying the High Court bail granted to the BNP leader in a violence case, paving the way for his release.
On December 26 last year, police filed a case with Turag Police Station against Gayeshwar on charge of giving order to produce three-hook barbed wire in order to carry out subversive activities. He was arrested on that night.
On May 6, the High Court granted bail to the imprisoned BNP standing committee member in the case.

Later, Gayeshwar’s counsel Nitai Roy Chowdhury prayed to the Appellate Division to vacate the order.
