A Dhaka court has rejected bail of former joint secretary general of Hefazat-e Islam who is a chargesheeted accused in subversive case.
Judge Fatima Imrose Khonika of No. 14 Special Tribunal of Dhaka passed the order on Tuesday responding to a plea.
At the same time, she set March 13 for recording the depositions of the witnesses in the case.
On January 14, 2015, BNP and Jamat-e-Islami leaders and workers vandalised vehicles and set those on fire at Madhya Pirerbagh of Sheorapa under Mirpur Model Police Station. Later, ASI Khondker Rajib Ahmed of Mirpur Model Police Station filed the case under the Special Powers Act. Mamunul Huq was a chargesheeted accused in the case.
On Tuesday, he was produced before the tribunal for showing him arrested. After the hearing the tribunal granted the petition. Afterward, Mamunul Huque’s lawyer Syed Zainul Abedin Mesbah submitted a prayer to the tribunal seeking his client’s bail. After the hearing, the tribunal rejected the bail prayer.
