The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court has stayed the bail of seven accused convicted by a lower court in the case over the 2002 attack on the convoy of the then leader of the opposition and current Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in Satkhira.

An Appellate Division bench led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order on Sunday.

The court in the order stayed the bail of the convicts for three weeks and asked the state to file a regular leave to appeal against the High Court order.

Attorney General AM Amin Uddin represented the state in the court, while Barrister AM Mahbub Uddin Khokon appeared for the accused.

The next hearing in the case is set to be held on June 20.

The High Court on May 25 granted interim bail to seven people convicted by a lower court in the case, including Advocate Abdus Sattar, a former general secretary of the Satkhira District Bar Association.

The bail was eventually postponed till May 30 by an order from the Appellate Division on May 27.

The accused who were granted bail are Golam Rasul, Abdus Samad, Abdus Sattar, Zahurul Islam, Rakib, Shahabuddin and Monirul Islam.
