The High Court has granted one year bail to Abul Asad, editor of Bangla Daily Sangram, in a case filed under Digital Security Act (DSA) on charges of circulating provocative reports and sedition.

The bench of Justice Md Emdadul Haque and Justice Md Akram Hossain Chowdhury passed the order on Wednesday.

The court also issued a rule asking the government why it should not grant a permanent bail to Asad.

Advocate Khandker Mahbub Hossain accompanied by Mohammad Shishir Monir stood for the bail petition. 

Earlier on December 13 last year, police detained Abul Asad as his newspaper described Abdul Quader Molla, an executed war criminal, as a “martyr” in a report published on December 12.

He was later shown arrested in a case filed under the DSA with Hatirjheel police station by ward 36 Muktijoddha Commander Afzal Hossain.

Meanwhile, leaders of Muktijuddho Mancha vandalized the office of Jamaat-e-Islami mouthpiece the Daily Sangram following its report.

Later on December 14, 2019, a Dhaka court placed Abul Asad on a three-day remand in the case.
