Dhaka: The High Court on Thursday granted bail to former Awami League MP from Tangail-3 (Ghatail) Amanur Rahman Khan Rana in a case filed over the killing of freedom fighter and member of district unit AL Faruk Ahmed.
The High Court bench of Justice A K M Asaduzzaman and Justice S M Mozibur Rahman passed the order, reports the UNB.
Deputy Attorney General Dr. Md Bashir Ullah stood for the state while lawyer Monsurul Haque Chowdhury for the accused.
The deputy attorney general said that they will file appeal to the Supreme Court against the order.
Meanwhile, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court stayed a High Court order that granted bail to Rana in a case filed over the killing of two Jubo League leaders.
Chamber Judge Nuruzzaman passed the order following a petition filed by the state.
Earlier on March 6, the High Court granted bail to him in the case filed over the killing of two Jubo League leaders.
Rana surrendered to the Tangail additional district and session’s judge court on September 18, 2016 ending his 22-month fugitive run in the freedom fighter murder case.
The AL leader went into ‘hiding’ after he was accused of killing freedom fighter and member of district unit AL Faruk Ahmed.
On January 18, 2013, the Awami League leader was shot dead in front of his residence in the district town.
Later, Faruk’s wife Nahar Ahmed filed a case in this connection.
Fourteen people, including four brothers of Tangail’s influential Khan family, were made accused in the murder case.
Baghil union Jubo League leaders Mohammad Shamim and Mohammad Mamun went missing on July 16, 2012 in the district town.
The following day, Shamim’s mother filed a general diary with Tangail Sadar police station.
Later, police arrested several suspects over the incident when two of the arrestees – Shahadat Hossain, 16 and Hiron Mia, 27 -- revealed that both of the Jubo League leaders had been murdered as per the order of MP Rana.
