Shahnaz Rahman, chairman of Transcom Group; Simeen Rahman, its chief executive officer (CEO); and Zaraif Ayaat Hossain, its head of transformation, have secured bail in four separate cases. 

Simeen Rahma’s Lawyer, Shahinur Islam, confirmed the information to media.

Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s (CMM) court Judge Mahbub Ahmed passed the order on Wednesday.

The executives were abroad when the lawsuits were filed against them. Later, separate writ petitions were filed with the High Court, seeking its direction to facilitate their unhindered return to the country and participation in the trial. 

The court in response directed them to ensure their return without any hindrance and surrender before the court within the next 72 hours. 

Complying with the directive, the three top executives of Transcom Group appeared before the CMM court in Dhaka on Wednesday morning, soon after their return from abroad. 

They surrendered before the court, along with bail pleas. The court heard their appeals and granted bail in four cases. 

Shazreh Huq, the younger sister of Simeen, filed three cases with the Gulshan police station on February 22, accusing eight executives of Transcom Group. 

The police immediately arrested five executives under the cases, but they secured bail from the court later. 

Shazreh filed another case against 11 people on March 22. She alleged that their older brother, Arshad Waliur Rahman, who died around nine months ago, was actually murdered. 

The three top executives of Transcom Group have been awarded bail in all the cases today, Wednesday. The remaining accused were granted bail earlier.
