She had been in jail since Saturday

A Dhaka court has granted bail to Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) women's wing chief Mahfuza Akter Kiron in a case filed under the Digital Security Act, accusing her of making derogatory remarks against Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sadbir Yasir Ahsan issued the order on Tuesday after hearing the bail petition filed by Kiron's lawyer.

“The court has granted the bail until April 2, for Tk10,000 bond,” Kiron’s lawyer Liakat Hossain said.

Kiron, also a Fifa council member, was sent to jail hours after she was arrested from her residence in Dhanmondi, Dhaka on Saturday.

Abul Hasan Chowdhury Prince, a permanent member of Mohammedan Sporting Club and Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club, as well as vice-president of Badda Jagoroni Club, filed the case on March 12, accusing Kiron of making derogatory remarks against the prime minister.

The BFF has opened an inquiry into the allegations. BFF President Kazi Salahuddin has formed a three-member committee led by Senior Vice-President Adbus Salam Murshedy, which will submit a report to the executive committee as soon as possible.
