SC asks lower court to finish trial in 3 months
The Supreme Court yesterday stayed for three months a High Court order that granted bail to BNP leader Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain in a graft case.
The SC also asked the lower court concerned to finish the trial of the case in three months after hearing a petition filed by Anti-Corruption Commission against the HC order.
Mosharraf will not get released in three months following the SC order, ACC lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan told The Daily Star.
On August 18, the HC granted the bail in the case, which was filed on the charge of amassing over Tk 9.53 crore between 2001 and 2006 and depositing that into a bank account in the United Kingdom.
