Dhaka court on Thursday granted bail to BNP Standing Committee Member Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury in four more cases filed in the capital’s Paltan and Ramna Police Stations.
Dhaka Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Tofazzal Hossain passed the order following a hearing on the bail petitions.
The court granted him bail till submission of police report upon a bond of Tk 10,000 in four out of the eight cases filed against him in two different police stations, Amir Khasru’s lawyer Syed Zainul Abedin Mejbah said.
Due to insufficient documents, the hearings were not held in the other four cases, Zainul Abedin said.
He hoped that once the necessary case files are submitted to the relevant court, the bail hearings would take place, and Khasru would secure bail in those cases as well.
Earlier, Khasru was produced in the court from Keraniganj jail around 1:30 pm. At that time, he was kept in the custody of the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court. Later, he was taken to the courtroom from custody around 2:00 pm.
A total of 10 cases were filed against Khasru on charges of sabotage activities during the BNP’s 28 October rally in 2023.
Among those, the BNP leader got bail in six cases.
The Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) detained Amir Khasru from his Gulshan residence in the small hours of November 3.
The court granted his 6-day remand on the same day and sent him to jail after remand on November 9. He has been in jail since then.
