The Bangladesh Jatri Kalyan Samity leader secures bail in a case filed under the Explosive Substances Act

A Dhaka court on Thursday rejected police’s pleas to show Bangladesh Jatri Kalyan Samity Secretary General Mozammel Haque Chowdhury arrested in a case filed under the Explosive Substances Act and take him into remand.

Instead, Metropolitan Magistrate Md Mazhraul Islam granted Mozammel bail in the afternoon, following a hearing on the bail petition filed earlier in the day by his lawyer Jyotirmoy Barua.

The explosives case was filed at the capital’s Kafrul police station in February. Police showed him arrested in the case on September 10 and pleaded to court to take him into remand.

Jyotirmoy said: “After securing bail in the second case, Mozammel’s release from police custody is now just a matter of time.”

Mozammel, on Tuesday, had also secured bail in an extortion case, which was filed at Mirpur model police station by a man named Dulal, who reportedly works in the transport sector, on September 4.

Bangladesh Jatri Kalyan Samity (Bangladesh Passengers Welfare Association) has been demanding his release since police arrested him on September 6 from his Sanarpar house in Narayanganj in the extortion case.

Later that day, another Dhaka court had placed him on a one-day remand.

According to details of this case, Mozammel allegedly demanded Tk2 lakh as extortion from Dulal. He Dulal then reportedly gave him Tk10,000.

However, when contacted, the plaintiff told various media outlets that he did not know Mozammel personally, and claimed that he only signed a piece of paper that was brought to him by two labour leaders.
