Aman gets bail in murder attempt case
A Dhaka court yesterday granted bail to former BNP state minister Amanullah Aman in an attempt-to-murder case filed with Mohammadpur Police Station in May this year.
Judge ANM Bashir Ullah of the Metropolitan Sessions Judge's Court passed the order upon a bond of Tk 30,000 with two guarantors following a criminal appeal filed by Aman's lawyers against the lower court's rejection order.
Moving the bail petition, defense lawyers told the court their client was implicated in the case as part of a conspiracy. Moreover, his name was in the first information report. So, they prayed for granting their client bail, the lawyers added.
On the contrary, the prosecution said Aman was arrested after three arrestees provided confessional statements on different dates. So, his bail should not be granted.
Earlier on October 12, a Dhaka court directed the investigation officer to interrogate Aman at the jail gate in connection with the case filed by one of his party colleagues.
The court also rejected a remand prayer sought by the police to interrogate Aman and the bail petition filed by his lawyers.
On September 29, the Detective Branch of Police arrested him at Zia International Airport.
Osman Gani, a BNP leader and businessman from Aman's constituency, filed the case on May 31 stating he came under a gun attack at Salimullah Road in Mohammadpur on May 29.
