The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (SC) on Monday stayed till March 27 a High Court order that allowed bail to the mayor of Dupchanchia municipality of Bogra and BNP leader Jahangir Alam, for making a forged court order by copying the signature of High Court judge.

Appellate Division Judge-in-Chamber Justice Md Ashfaqul Islam passed the order after holding a hearing on a plea filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) against the High Court order.

Senior Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan moved the case for ACC before the court, while Deputy Attorney General Sarwar Hossain Bappi stood for the state.

“Jahangir Alam had made a forged judgment of a criminal miscellaneous case by copying the signature of a High Court judge. This forgery was proved in the ACC probe also and that is why we had pleaded to stay his bail,” ACC counsel Khurshid Alam Khan said.
