The High Court today granted a six-month bail to BNP leader Aman Ullah Aman while one of its judges felt embarrassed to entertain the bail petition of Gayeshwar Chandra Roy in a case filed for killing a Shibir man in the capital last year.
Rampura police filed the case on December 30 last year a day after an Islami Chhatra Shibir man, Mansur Pradhania, 20, was killed at Malibagh Choudhurypara supporting March for Democracy programme, which was scheduled for that day.
Of the two judges, Justice Zafar Ahmed felt embarrassed to hear the bail petition of Gayeshwar, BNP standing committee member, in this case but he did not mention any reason for it.
Talking to The Daily Star, Gayeshwar’s lawyer Nitai Roy Chowdhury said he will move the bail petition of his clients before another HC bench.
On the other hand, the same bench comprising with Justice Naima Haider and Justice Zafar granted bail to BNP Joint Secretary General Aman for six months in the same case.
Mansur, a law student of City University in Banani, died in a clash between police and the activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and its student wing, Chhatra Shibir, at Malibagh on December 29 last year.
