Two separate cases were filed against 135 BNP leaders, men on allegations of vandalism 

The High Court has granted eight weeks of interim bail to 23 BNP leaders including its Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir in a case.

The High Court bench of Justice Jahangir Hossain and Justice Md Riaz Uddin Khan granted the bail on Sunday.

The case against them was filed with the allegation of setting three motorcycles on fire near the Supreme Court entrance on December 11. 

The top BNP leaders who received the interim bails are Mirza Abbas, Gayeshwar Chandra Roy, Abdullah Al Noman, Syed Moazzem Hossain Alal, Khairul Kabir Khokon, AKM Fazlul Haque Milon, Shamsur Rahman Shimul Biswas, Advocate Zainul Abedin, Barrister Mahbub Uddin Khokon, and BNP Joint General Secretary Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.

BNP leader Barrister Ehsanur Rahman confirmed the matter.

He said, they will surrender to the lower court after eight weeks.

On 11 December, two separate lawsuits were filed with Shahbag police against 135 BNP leaders and activists including Fakhrul over the incident.

At that time, Shahbagh police station officer-in-charge (OC) Abul Hossain said they suspected that it was pre-planned. “Those, who did such things are trying to create chaos.”

Police did not arrest anyone over the incident, the OC said.

The latest medical report of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s physical condition was supposed to reach the Supreme Court from Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) on the day.

DMP Ramna Zone Senior Assistant Commissioner AM Shamim said that the matter was being looked into.
