Former state minister Mir Mohammad Nasiruddin gets bail in corruption case
The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court today granted bail to BNP leader and former state minister for Civil Aviation Mir Mohammad Nasiruddin in a corruption case in which he was sentenced to 13 years' imprisonment.
A three-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain granted the bail on the ground of ongoing Covid-19 situation, following a petition filed by Mir Mohammad Nasiruddin.
Lawyers M Asaduzzaman and Md Ruhul Quddus Kazal appeared for Nasiruddin while Anti-Corruption Commission's lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan opposed the bail petition.
On November 8 last year, a Dhaka court sent Mir Mohammad Nasiruddin to jail on his surrender in the same corruption case.
Mir Mohammad Nasiruddin then filed the petition with the apex court seeking bail in the case on health ground.
On July 4, 2007, an anti-graft tribunal sentenced Nasir to 13 years for committing two corruption offences and sentenced his son Helal to three years for abetting him.
On March 6, 2007, ACC Deputy Director Sharmin Ferdous filed a graft case against Nasir with Gulshan Police Station for amassing properties illegally.
