Khulna Metropolitan Magistrate Md Shahidul Islam passed the order on Wednesday

A Khulna court sent a lawyer to jail in a case filed for helping an accused get released from jail through forged bail order of the High Court.

The accused lawyer is Md Arafat Hossain, 32.

Khulna Metropolitan Magistrate Md Shahidul Islam passed the order on Wednesday.

According to court sources, Arafat got Robiul Islam—accused in a case filed under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act—released from jail by submitting forged documents of the High Court in 2018.

His forgery came to light when the plaintiff presented genuine papers of the High Court to the court.

Later, Md Rezaul Karim, judge of the court, filed a case against the lawyer on March 21, 2018.

After investigation, Mehedi Hasan, inspector of Criminal Investigation Department, submitted a charge sheet against him on November 13, 2019.
