Nayapaltan Clash: Fakhrul, Abbas seek bail again



BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and the party’s standing committee member Mirza Abbas yesterday sought bail from the High Court in a case filed over the December 7 clash between party activists and police.

Their lawyers submitted a petition to the HC seeking their bail in the case, saying that the lower courts concerned have not granted bail to Fakhrul and Abbas though their names were not mentioned in the first information report (FIR) of the case and other FIR named accused have been granted bail.

The HC bench of Justice Md Salim and Justice Md Riaz Uddin Khan may hold hearing of the bail petition today.

Details of the contents of the bail petition could not be known immediately as the accused petitioners’ principal lawyer Zainul Abedin refused to make comment in this regard.

Fakhrul and Abbas have earlier been denied bail four times by the lower courts concerned in the same case.

The case was filed with Paltan Model Police Station on December 8, a day after the clash broke out in front of the BNP’s Nayapaltan office. The clash left one dead and many injured.

Fakhrul and Abbas were picked up from their homes around 3:00am on December 9, a day before their Dhaka divisional mass rally, and were sent to jail after Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jashim rejected their bail petitions.
