Shooting boy: MP Liton denied bail
-- Liton denied bail
-- He submits bail pleas in 2 cases on Oct 21
A Gaibandha court today denied bail to ruling party lawmaker Manjurul Islam Liton in a case filed over shooting a 10-year-old boy.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Mohammad Waheduzzaman passed the order after hearing the bail petition filed by Liton.
Advocate Sirajul Islam, a lawyer for Liton, submitted two petitions with the Chief Judicial Magistrate’s Court on October 21, seeking bail in two cases--one for shooting the minor boy while another for vandalising and looting a house.
On October 14, detectives arrested MP Liton in Dhaka’s Uttara area in connection with the two cases.
A day after the arrest, Liton was taken to Gaibandha where Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Moinul Hassan Yousuf sent him to jail after denying his bail.
The arrest had come hours after the Supreme Court (SC) stayed a High Court order directing the MP to surrender before a lower court by October 18 in the cases.
The SC passed the stay order following a petition filed by the state on October 13.
On October 2, Sourav, son of Sazu Miah of Gopalcharan village in Sundarganj upazila, suffered wounds to his both legs with bullets allegedly fired by Liton.
Sazu filed an attempted murder case against Liton the following day.
On October 8, another case was filed against him on charge of vandalising and looting a house.
