A Dhaka court on Monday granted bail to BNP leader and former mayoral candidate of Dhaka South City Corporation, Ishraque Hossain, in 12 cases.

These include seven cases at the Paltan police station, three at the Ramna Model police station, and two at the Motijheel police station.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Ash Shams Jaglul Hossain passed the order after he surrendered before the court and sought bail in the case. After the hearing, the court granted him interim bail in all these cases.

Ishraque's Lawyer Syed Zainul Abedin Mejbah, confirmed this information. 

He said: "Ishraque Hossain had received six weeks of bail from the High Court in these various sabotage cases filed in different police stations. After the expiration of that six weeks, he surrendered in the lower court and applied for bail. Following the hearing, the court approved his application for temporary (interim) bail in these 12 cases of sabotage."

The charges in the cases reveal that in 2023, BNP activists allegedly gathered illegally in various parts of the capital city to protest the national elections, where they exploded bombs, obstructed police duties, and assaulted police officers with the intent to kill, resulting in injuries. Multiple cases were filed in different police stations based on these allegations.
