A Dhaka Court has granted bail to actor Quazi Nawshaba Ahmed in a case filed under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Debabrata Biswas granted the bail on Tuesday on a bond of Tk5,000, the court's general recording officer Sub-Inspector Mokbul Hossain was quoted by UNB as saying.

On Monday, Metropolitan Magistrate Mahmuda Akhter denied her bail when she was produced before the court on completion of her treatment at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).

She was then sent to jail.

Nawshaba was admitted to the DMCH on August 13 for treatment following a court order as she fell ill in the courtroom.

A Dhaka court earlier on August 11 put her on a two-day remand in the case when Inspector Mohammad Rafiqul Islam of police's Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit, who is the investigation officer in the case, produced her before the court following her four-day remand and sought a 10-day extension.

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained the actor in Dhaka's Uttara area on August 4 on charges of spreading rumours on Facebook over the attack on students demonstrating in Dhanmondi for road safety.

On a live video on Facebook, Nawshaba claimed that the attackers killed two students and gouged out the eyes of another in Dhanmondi's Jigatola intersection.

In her post, she also requested people to get united and take to the streets to protect the students as they were attacked by Bangladesh Chhatra League activists.
