Salahuddin gets bail

Update : 05 Jun 2015, 08:31 PM

A lower court in the Indian state of Meghalaya yesterday granted conditional bail to detained BNP Joint Secretary General Salahuddin Ahmed in a case filed for trespassing.

Shillong District and Sessions Judge’s Court passed the order around 4pm (local time) after a hearing on the charge sheet the local police pressed against him.

BNP Assistant Office Secretary Abdul Latif Jony told UNB: “The court gave Salahuddin bail on condition that he will have to stay in Shillong and be present before the court once a week.”

On Wednesday, Shillong police pressed charges against the BNP leader in the case for intruding India. The charge sheet comes 23 days after the case was filed under the Foreigners Act of India. On May 29, the lower court denied him bail after a hearing on a petition filed by his wife Hasina Ahmed.

After remaining missing for around two months, he was found in Shillong, the capital of northeastern Indian state of Meghalaya, on May 11. He was arrested for entering India without any valid documents.

Salahuddin is currently undergoing treatment at the North Eastern Indira Gandhi Institute of Health and Medical Sciences (NEIGIHMS) under judicial custody.
