Dhaka: The High Court on Wednesday granted bail to acting Amar Desh editor Mahmudur Rahman in a case filed in connection with the plot to abduct and kill Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s son Sajeeb Wazed Joy in the United States. UNB News Agency Reported.
An HC bench of Justice AKM Asaduzzaman and Justice Zafar Ahmed passed the order after concluding the hearing on a rule issued earlier regarding Mahmudur’s bail.
Former attorney general AJ Mohammad Ali accompanied by Advocate Tanvir Ahmed Al Amin argued for Mahmudur during the hearing while Additional Attorney General Md Momtaj Uddin Fakir stood for the state.
Tanvir told reporters that the court disposed of the rule and granted bail to Mahmudur. With this, Mahmudur has secured bail in all cases filed against him and there is no legal bar to his release, added the lawyer.
Meanwhile, the deputy attorney general said they will file an appeal with the Supreme Court against the High Court order.
