She secured ad-interim bail in two cases on June 16

BNP executive committee member Nipun Roy has been released from jail on bail on Friday, nearly two and a half months after her arrest.

She walked out of the Dhaka Central Jail in Keraniganj around 1pm after the bail order reached the jail authorities, said her father and BNP Vice-Chairman Netai Roy Chowdhury.

Party activists and relatives greeted her with flowers as she came out of the jail, reports UNB.

Nipun Roy is the daughter-in-law of the party’s Standing Committee Member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy.

On June 16, she secured ad-interim bail in the two cases filed against her with Jatrabari and Hazaribagh police stations. 

Advocate Nipun was arrested on March 28 from her home in Dhaka’s Rayerbazar area on charges of subversion, after a recorded phone call – in which she was heard instructing to set cars on fire during the Hefazat-e-Islam's shutdown – went viral on social media. A case was filed against her with Hazaribagh police station.

She was also shown arrested in a case filed by Jatrabari police on charges of illegal assembly, serious injury and attempted murder.
