SC stays lawmaker Rana’s bail for three days
The Supreme Court on Sunday stayed for three days a High Court order that granted bail to Awami League lawmaker from Tangail-3 constituency Amanur Rahman Khan Rana in Faruk Ahmed murder case.
Chamber judge of the Appellate Division Justice Hasan Foez Siddique passed the order following a petition filed by the government seeking a stay on the HC order, reports UNB.
The chamber judge also fixed April 18 for hearing on the government’s stay petition as there was no lawyer for Rana during Sunday’s hearing.
Attorney General Mahbubey Alam and Deputy Attorney General Masud Hasan Chowdhury Porag represented the state.
Earlier, the High Court granted interim bail to Rana.
Faruk Ahmed, a senior AL leader and a freedom fighter, was shot dead in the district town of Tangail on January 18, 2013.
Rana is a charge-sheeted accused in the case.
When Rana appeared before Tangail Additional District and Session's Judge court ending his 22-month fugitive run on September 18 last, the court sent him to jail.
In February 2016, detectives pressed charges against 14 people, including the ruling party MP and his three brothers, in the Faruk murder case.
