Fakhrul released from jail on bail

Update : 01 Dec 2015, 07:55 PM

Nearly one month into his arrest, BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir was freed from jail on bail yesterday.

Fakhrul walked out of the part 2 of Kashimpur Central Jail around 7:45pm after the bail order reached the jail authorities, said jail sources.

BNP leaders and activists, including BNP chairperson’s media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan, BNP-backed Kaliakoir municipal mayor Mujibur Rahman and Fakhrul’s wife Rahat Ara Begum, received the BNP leader at the jail gate.

On Monday, the Supreme Court upheld the High Court order granting three months’ bail to Mirza Fakhrul in three arson attack cases.

The government filed the petition with the SC on November 26 challenging the HC order granting three months’ bail to the BNP leader in the three cases.

After primary hearing of the petition, the chamber judge of the Appellate Division Justice Hasan Foez Siddique sent it to the regular bench of the division fixing November 30 for the next hearing.
