BNP leader Dulu denied bail

A Dhaka court yesterday rejected a bail petition of BNP Organising Secretary Ruhul Kuddus Talukder Dulu, in connection with an arson case filed against him during the anti-government demonstration in 2015.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Md Aminul Haque passed the order after Dulu's lawyer submitted a petition seeking bail for his client in the case.

According to the case, a group of BNP leaders and activists led by Dulu torched vehicles, assaulted policemen and prevented them from discharging their duties in Sher-e-Bangla Nagar area.

Police submitted a charge sheet in 2017, showing Dulu fugitive in the case and appealed to a court to issue a warrant against him.

On December 12, detectives picked up the BNP leader from his Gulshan residence in connection with the case.

The following day, a Dhaka court sent him to jail and fixed December 23 for the hearing.

Dulu was a Jatiya Oikyafront aspirant for the 11th parliamentary election held on December 30.

But his candidature was cancelled due to the conviction and sentence.
