The High Court has ordered the filing of a case against five, including two prison sentries, for forging documents to secure bail for Abdus Sattar, who is serving time after getting a trial court's verdict of 17 years imprisonment in an arms case.

The High Court bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mustafizur Rahman came up with the order while advocate Sheikh Atiar Rahman placed the matter before the court after he had concluded an investigation about the forgery by his client.

The five people are convict Abdus Sattar of Chuadanga, his father Nizamuddin (as he filed an affidavit), two prison sentries of Jhenaidah jail Biswajit Babu and Khayrul Alam, and Chanda Ali Biswas, who provided the forged documents.

According to the lawyer, Abdus Sattar, of Kayet para under Alamdanga upazila in Chuadanga was arrested with a pistol and bullets on May 2, 2018.

The trial court gave him 17 years jail term for carrying an illegal firearm on October 31, 2018.

Sattar later secured bail from the High Court, but before his release, his lawyer doubted the veracity of the documents he provided for his client and conducted an investigation on his own.

When he found proof that the documents were forged, he informed the court on September 21, this year. The High Court recalled the bail order and kept Sattar in jail. 

The bail petition was filed changing the FIR, investigation report, seizure list, and the trial court’s verdict.

Sattar was the only one convicted, but the forged documents showed he was the second accused in the case, and it also showed that he had a Chinese axe instead of a pistol according to the seizure list, said state lawyer Sarwar Hossain.
