Ex-MP Rana gets bail

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

The High Court (HC) yesterday granted permanent bail to former Awami League lawmaker from Tangail-3 Amanur Rahman Khan Rana in a case filed over the killing of two Juba League leaders paving the way for his walk out of jail. The HC bench comprising Justice AKM Asaduzzaman and Justice SM Mozibur Rahman passed the order after final hearing on a rule issued by it earlier in connection with the case.

Earlier, the HC granted a six-month bail to Rana in the case and issued a rule asking the government to explain why Rana should not be granted permanent bail in the case. Advocate Monsurul Haque Chowdhury assisted by advocate Rusho Mostafa represented Rana while Deputy Attorney General Dr Md Basir Ullah represented the state. Later, advocate Rusho Mostafa, counsel for Rana, told reporters that there is no legal bar to release the former Awami League lawmaker from jail following the High Court’s order as he has secured bail in all other cases filed against him.

Rana has been linked to the murders of two Baghil Union Juba League leaders—Mohammad Shamim and Mohammad Mamun—who went missing on July 16, 2012. Later, police arrested several suspects over the incident when two of the arrested — Shahadat Hossain, 16, and Hiron Mia, 27, revealed that both of the Juba League leaders had been murdered as per the order of lawmaker Rana.

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 Tangail town.
