Dhaka – The High Court (HC) on Tuesday granted three months’ bail to BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir in three arson cases filed with Paltan police station.
An HC bench comprising Justice M Rezaul Haque and Justice M Khasruzzaman passed the order after disposing the court’s earlier rule over granting Fakhrul permanent bail in the three cases.
Advocate Joynal Abedin, Advocate Sagir Hossain Lion and Barrister Ehsanur Rahman stood for the defence.
Barrister Ehsanur Rahman said the HC came up with the order after receiving a medical report of Fakhrul.
He also said with the order, there remains no bar for the release of Fakhrul.
Earlier on November 16, the HC deferred passing its orders till November 22 on the three petitions filed by the BNP leader seeking bail.
On November 11, the same court fixed November 16 for passing order on the three petitions.
On November 3, Fakhrul was sent to jail again after he surrendered before a court in the three arson cases.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate M Maruf Hossain passed the order rejecting Fakrul’s bail prayers in the cases.
The court, however, asked the jail authorities to ensure Fakhrul’s medical treatment for various diseases.
On November 2, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court asked Mirza Fakhrul to surrender to a lower court turning down his bail petition seeking extension of the deadline for his surrender in the three cases.
