Journalist Ahmed Razu granted bail
Journalist Ahmed Razu, the executive editor of online newspaper “Natun Somoy,” was granted bail on Wednesday in two cases filed for charges of extortion and publishing false reports. Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrates Ahsan Habib and Md Raihan-ul-Islam approved the bail after hearing Razu’s bail petition regarding the cases. Razu’s counsel Md Tarikul Islam said there was no legal barrier to his client’s release from the custody after bail was granted in both cases.

Rabiul Islam, the first senior assistant-director of Creative and Publication for Walton group, filed another case with Paltan police station against journalist Razu for allegedly attempting to extort Tk5 lakh from them. Razu was an employee of Walton-owned newspaper Rising BD until he was fired. Razu had approved a number of news reports on Natun Somoy that criticised the after-sale service of Walton, particularly regarding their phones and motorcycles.
