SC stays ex-MP Rana’s bail

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court yesterday upheld its chamber judge’s order that stayed a HC verdict that granted bail to Awami League former lawmaker Amanur Rahman Khan Rana in connection with a murder case. A four-member bench of the Appellate Division led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order after disposing of a petition filed by the state seeking stay on the HC’s bail order.
Deputy Attorney General Dr MH Bashur Ullah told reporters that Rana could not get released from jail on bail following the apex court order. Earlier on April 16, the chamber court of the Appellate Division stayed for three days a High Court order granting bail to
Rana in the freedom fighter Faruk Ahmed murder case.
Chamber judge of the Appellate Division Justice Hasan Foez Siddique passed the order following a petition filed by the government for staying the HC order.
Earlier, on April 13, the High Court granted ad-interim bail to Amanur Rahman Khan Rana in the freedom fighter Faruk Ahmed murder case.
The HC bench comprising Justice Miftah Uddin Choudhury and Justice ANM Bashir Ullah also issued a rule asking the government to explain why Rana should not be granted a regular bail in this case. Faruk, publicity secretary of Tangail district Awami League, was shot dead in front of his house in Tangail town on January 18, 2013.

Three days after the murder, Faruk’s wife Nahar Ahmed filed the case with Tangail Model Police Station. Police, on February 3, 2016, pressed charges against 14 people including Rana and his three brothers in the case.

Amanur landed in jail on September 18, 2016 when he surrendered to a Tangail court in the murder case. He had reportedly been in hiding to avoid arrest since August 2014 when he was named by two detained accused in the case.
