A virtual Appellate Division bench led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order on Thursday

The Appellate Division on Thursday fixed April 25 for hearing a petition filed by the state challenging bail of Erfan Selim that was granted by the High Court (HC) in a case over assaulting a Navy officer last year.

A virtual Appellate Division bench led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain fixed the date. 

Advocate Abdul Baset Majumdar stood for Erfan, son of Awami League leader MP Haji Selim.

On March 18, the High Court had granted him bail which was later stayed for four weeks by the chamber judge on March 28.

According to the case statement, a private car hit Bangladesh Navy’s Lieutenant Wasif Ahmed Khan’s motorcycle near Labaid Hospital at Dhanmondi on October 25, 2020, when he and his wife were returning to their Mohammadpur residence from Nilkhet.

Later, some people, including Erfan, came out of the car and physically assaulted Wasif and verbally abused his wife.

The Navy officer filed a case at Dhanmondi Police Station, naming four people including Erfan. The three other accused are AB Siddique Dipu, 45, Md Zahid, 35, and Md Mizanur Rahman, 30. All of them are behind bars now.

On October 26, 2020, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained Erfan from his father’s Devdas Lane residence in Old Dhaka. Two firearms, 38 walkie-talkies, and liquor were seized from his house during the drive.

He was suspended from the post of councillor the next day. He has been facing four more cases.

He was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment for keeping walkie-talkies illegally and another six months for possessing illegal liquor on October 26, 2020, by a mobile court led by RAB.
