The former BNP minister was sued for “instigating” violence during the recent student movement over road safety and “conspiring” against the state

The High Court on Monday granted anticipatory bail to BNP Standing Committee Member Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury in two cases filed for “instigating” violence during the recent student movement over road safety and “conspiring” against the state.

The bench of Justice Muhammad Abdul Hafiz and Justice Bhishmadev Chakrabortty passed the order after he surrendered before the court and filed bail petitions in the cases, reports UNB.

Of the two cases, one was filed at Shahbagh police station in Dhaka and the other at Kotwali police station in Chittagong on August 4.

Khosru, a former commerce minister, was sued after a reported audio clip of his telephonic conversation with a man regarding the student movement went viral on social media on August 4.
