A Dhaka court will pass order this afternoon on the bail petitions of five BNP leaders, including MK Anwar, Moudud Ahmed and Rafiqul Islam Miah, in two cases.
The two other leaders are: BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s adviser Abdul Awal Mintoo and her special assistant Shamsur Rahman Shimul Biswas.
On November 18, the petitions were filed challenging the legality of a lower court’s bail rejection order in the cases filed with Motijheel Police Station for “attempted murder of cops and creating violence in the capital” on September 24 and November 6 respectively.
Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Md Zahirul Haque is expected to pass order on the two separate bail petitions around 2:00pm.
Earlier this morning, the court heard the arguments from both the prosecution and defence.
