Supreme court stays MP Amanur’s bail
The Appellate Division of Supreme Court on Sunday stayed until April 18 an order issued by the High Court granting bail to ruling Awami League MP Amanur Rahman Khan in regard with the killing of freedom fighter Faruk Ahmed.
Appellate Division chamber Judge Hasan Foez Siddique passed the order after hearing a government appeal against the High Court bail order.
Earlier on Thursday, 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.
Three days after the murder, Faruk’s wife Nahar Ahmed filed the case with Tangail model police station.
Amanur landed in jail on September 18, 2016 when he surrendered to a Tangail court in the murder case.
