Kibria Murder: Suspended Sylhet mayor gets bail
A bench of Justice Syed Muhammad Dastagir Husain and Justice Md Mozibur Rahman Miah passed the order on Tuesday disposing of a HC rule that had asked the state authorities to explain why Ariful would not be granted bail in the case. The HC had issued the rule on August 09. Mainul Hossain, Abdul Hakim Kafi and Md Nizam Uddin stood for the defendant while Deputy Attorney General Dr Mohammad Bashir Ullah represented the state. Contacted, Barrister Kafi said: “Ariful has been in jail since 2014 and he has recently become seriously ill. A total of 32 witnesses gave deposition in the Kibria murder case but none of them said anything about Ariful’s involvement in the murder. Considering the facts, the HC granted the bail. Despite the order, Ariful will not be released from jail as he is accused in another lawsuit filed under the Explosives Act.” The deputy attorney general told the UNB that they would file an appeal against the bail with the Supreme Court. Ariful lost his mayoral office January last year following his surrender before a district court on December 30, 2014. On November 13 that year, police submitted a supplementary charge sheet against 35 people including 11 new in the Kibria murder case. The freshly-indicted accused included Ariful, Habiganj Mayor GK Gaus and Haris Chowdhury, former political adviser to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia. On January 27, 2005, five people, including Awami League-led government's finance minister Kibria, were killed in a grenade attack carried out in a rally in Boidyer Bazar of Habiganj.
