A Dhaka court has granted bail to activist Imran H Sarker in a defamation case filed for derogatory remarks about Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Dhaka Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sheikh Shamidul Islam passed the order Wednesday afternoon. Earlier in the morning, Imran surrendered before the court and sought bail.
