SC extends stay on MP Amanur’s bail upto 8 May
The Appellate Division of Supreme Court on Tuesday extended its stay order until May 8 on the High Court verdict that had rendered bail to ruling Awami League MP Amanur Rahman Khan in connection with the killing of freedom fighter Faruk Ahmed.
Earlier on Sunday, the Appellate Division stayed Amanur’s bail order until today.
Chamber Judge Hasan Foez Siddique issued the order after hearing a government appeal asking for extension of the stay order this morning.
On April 13, a High Court bench of Justice Md Miftah Uddin Choudhury and Justice ANM Bashir Ullah granted the bail after hearing Amanur’s bail petition.
Police on February 3, 2016 filed charges for murder of freedom fighter Faruk against 14 people including Amanur and his three brothers.
Faruk, also the then publicity secretary of Tangail district Awami League, was shot dead in front of his house in Tangail town on January 18, 2013.
