The High Court today granted bail to BNP leaders Moudud Ahmed, MK Anwar and Rafiqul Islam Mia for three months in a case filed on charge of blasting bombs and holding illegal assembly.
The case was filed with Motijheel Police Station on May 6 last year following the indents of blasting bombs during the rally of Hefajat-e-Islam in Motijheel area in the capital on May 5 the same year.
The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Mohammad Ullah granted bail to the detained BNP leaders after hearing three separate petitions filed by them.
There is no legal bar to the release of MK Anwar and Rafiqul Islam Mia following the HC orders, as they have got bail in all the five cases filed against them, AKM Ehsanur Rahman, a lawyer for the petitioners, told The Daily Star.
He, however, said Moudud will not get released now, as he is arrested in a corruption case.
Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court upheld the HC orders that had granted bail to four BNP leaders including Moudud, Anwar and Rafiqul in two other cases involving charges of blasting crude bombs and vandalising vehicles.
The other BNP leader is Shamsur Rahman Shimul Biswas.
