Arrest warrant against for bus owner, driver

A day after granting bail to them, a court yesterday issued warrants for the arrest of the 'Ganj-e-raj Paribahan' bus owner and its driver in a case filed over the death of a baby girl in a road accident in the district town on August 28, reports UNB. Senior Judicial Magistrate MM Morshed passed the order following a petition filed by sub-inspector Sumon Quaderi of Kushtia Model Police Station, also the investigation officer of the case.

Presenting the evidence before the court that the bus owner and driver were responsible for the accident, the IO prayed to it for cancelling their bail.

Later, the court issued the arrest warrants cancelling their bail. Earlier on Monday, MM Morshed granted bail to bus owner Joynal Abedin and driver Mahid Miah alias Khokon in the case.

Members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) in a drive arrested Joynal Abedin from his house in Faridpur district town on Sunday.

Besides, Khokon surrendered before the court on Monday morning.
