Mirza Fakhrul's bail hearing Monday
Hearing on the bail of BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir is set to be held on Monday in a case filed with Ramna Model Police Station over the attack on Chief Justice's house at Kakrail in the capital.
The hearing is scheduled to be held at the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions judge Md Asaduzzaman.
Earlier on November 2, Advocate Syed Zainul Abedin Mesbah submitted a prayer to the court seeking bail of Mirza Fakhrul.
The BNP leader was produced before court on October 29 showing arrested in the case. Then the investigation officer of the case pleaded to court to keep him in jail in the case.
Mirza Fakhrul’s lawyer Syed Zainul Abedin Mesbah said the BNP secretary general was ill. He was made an accused just for harassment.
Another lawyer Omar Faruqui told the court that on 28 October Mirza Fakhrul was on the main stage, which falls within the jurisdiction of Paltan police station. He is in no way involved with the vandalisation and hurling brickbats at the house of the chief justice that falls under the jurisdiction of Ramna police station.
He also said that a conspiracy was made to foil the mass rally of BNP.
Lawyer Iqbal Hossain told the court that Mirza Fakhrul is a teacher but he has been accused in 102 cases just because of his political identity. He appeared before the court in every case. He respects the law.
Later, a bail was sought from the CMM court. However, the court rejected the plea and sent him to jail.
