Fakhrul, Khasru secure bail; no bar to walk out of jail

Dhaka, Feb 14 - A Dhaka court on Wednesday granted bail to BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and its standing committee member Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury in a case filed over vandalising the residence of the Chief Justice (CJ) during the grand rally of the party on October 28 last year.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judges Court's acting judge Faisal Atiq Bin Quader passed the order after hearing a petition in this regard, lawyer Syed Joynul Abedin said.

He said since his clients secured bail in all the cases filed against them, so there is no bar to walk out of jail.

On October 29, police filed a case with Ramna Police on charges of vandalism and attack on the Chief Justice's residence during the BNP rally on October 28.

Apart from Fakhrul, 59 BNP leaders and activists were accused in the case.

At least 11 cases were filed against Fakhrul and 10 cases against Khasru over violence centering the October 28 rally in Dhaka.

Fakhrul was arrested from his Gulshan house on October 29 and has been in jail since then. Amir Khasru was arrested from his Gulshan residence in the small hours of November 3.-UNB
