Ron Huque Sikder’s bail extended until April 11
A Dhaka court has extended the bail for Sikder Group Managing Director Ron Huque Sikder until April 11 this year in an attempt to murder case.
As his ad interim bail expired, Ron surrendered before the court Wednesday, and his counsels applied for bail extension.
The court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Chowdhury granted him the bail extension.
On February 12, the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Ashek Imam granted bail to Ron Huque Sikder until March 10 to attend his father’s funeral. Ron was arrested earlier in the morning upon his arrival at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport from Dubai.
Sikder Group Managing Director Ron Huque Sikder and Director Dipu Huque Sikder allegedly abducted two Exim Bank officials and threatened to shoot them dead. A case was filed by the bank with Gulshan police station on May 19 last year in this connection.
Six days later, Ron and Dipu fled to Thailand by an air ambulance amid the coronavirus-led regular flight suspension.
According to the case statement, the bank officials were abducted on May 7 last year as they had turned down a Tk 500 crore loan proposal of Sikder Group.
After the Sikder brothers had fled Bangladesh, police seized a vehicle belonging to Ron amid uproar over reports of the brothers’ escape from the country.
While staying abroad, the Sikder brothers appealed for bail with the High Court, which was scrapped on July 20 last year. The High Court then said, “Such an appeal is the first in human history. It is certainly astonishing.”
