Financing militant group: SC lawyer gets bail
Shakila along with two other lawyers -- Hasanuzzaman Liton, who reportedly practise at the Supreme Court, and Mahfuz Chowdhury Bapon -- were arrested from Dhanmondi area in Dhaka on August 18 last year for her alleged link in funding Shaheed Hamja Brigade, a Chittagong-based militant outfit.
The bench of Justice Farid Ahmed and Justice AKM Zahirul Hoque passed the order following two petitions filed by Shakila seeking bail in the cases.
Following today’s HC order, Shakila will be released, her lawyer ZI Khan Panna told The Daily Star.
The three were shown arrested in the case filed after the recovery of Shaheed Hamja Brigade's arms and ammunition on February 21 last year.
Liton reportedly practise at the Supreme Court while Bapon practises at the District Judge's Court.
