SC orders to produce MP Rana before court

The Supreme Court ordered authorities concerned to produce Tangail MP Amanur Rahman Khan Rana, now detained in prison over freedom fighter Faruk Ahmed murder case, to court on the day of the trial.

A three-member appellate bench led by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha also adjourned Rana’s bail hearing until Oct 15, reports bdnews24.com.

During a hearing on Wednesday, Attorney General Mahbubey Alam said Rana was rarely brought to court, prompting the bench to order Rana to appear on the day of the trial.

Rana received bail from the High Court, but the bail was later stayed by the Appellate Division for four months. The court also ordered that the trial be completed within six months.

Police pressed charges against Rana, his three brothers and 10 others in a 2013 case that involves the killing of Tangail Awami League leader Faruk.

The MP turned himself in last year and the court sent him to jail, pending trial. He took the case to the High Court after the trial court rejected his bail pleas.

A High Court bench granted interim bail to Rana on Apr 13. The state filed the petition for a stay on Apr 18 with the chamber judge.

The case was transferred to the appellate bench and the bail was stayed on May 8.
