Dainik Amar Desh acting Editor Mahmudur Rahman appeared before the Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court in the district yesterday.
He submitted a copy of the bail order, which he got from the High Court (HC) recently in a defamation case filed against him in the district, to the court.
Chief Judicial Magistrate Khaleda Yasmin received the bail order copy, said defence lawyer Arfan Ali Mollah.
Arfan told journalists that a Tk 2,000 crore defamation case was filed against Mahmudur on December 12 by local Awami League leader Saifuzzaman Sohel.
A HC Bench on January 30 granted eight-week anticipatory bail to Mahmudur in six sedition and defamation cases, including the case filed in the district, he said.
