Gayeshwar, Aman denied bail again

Update : 27 Apr 2014, 06:28 PM

Yesterday, a Dhaka court again rejected a request for bail from the BNP Standing Committee Member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy and the party’s Joint Secretary General Aman Ullah Aman in regards to a case filed against them for killing a Shibir man in the capital last year.

Judge Md Jahurul Haque of the Metropolitan Sessions Judge’s Court of Dhaka passed the order after the defendants’ counsels submitted two separate petitions against the bail rejection order of a lower court.

On April 23, Metropolitan Magistrate Harun-or-Rashid denied bail to the leaders after a hearing on their bail petition.

Earlier on April 20, the same court rejected bail petitions of the two BNP leaders and sent them to jail, but granted bail to the BNP Standing Committee Member Mirza Abbas when the three leaders surrendered and sought bail.

The case was filed with the Rampura police station after Mansur Pradhania, 20, was killed in a clash among the police, the activists of Jamaat-e-Islami, a partner of the then BNP-led alliance, and its affiliated student organisation, Islami Chhatra Shibir, at Malibagh in the capital on December 29, 2013.

In the statement, the police accused more than a dozen BNP and Jamaat leaders, including Sadeque Hossain and Mirza Abbas, for directly and indirectly instigating, plotting and financing violence.

The alliance brought out a procession in support of the BNP’s March for Democracy, which was set for that day.

On March 9, the High Court remanded the leaders on bail for six weeks.
