Farroque granted bail
A court here yesterday granted bail to opposition chief whip Zainul Abdin Farroque in a defamation case. Metropolitan magistrate Mahbubur Rahman granted the bail when Farroque surrendered before the court in the morning. Jubo League central committee member Mohammad Saifuddin filed case on March 15 accusing him of making 'derogatory remarks' against Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's son Sajeeb Wazed Joy. Farroque had said Joy was involved in illegal VoIP (voice over internet protocol) business. UNB adds: Talking to journalists after getting bail yesterday the opposition chief whip said the government is hatching conspiracy to remove the name of Shaheed President Ziaur Rahman from people's hearts. “The conspiracy won't be successful," he said.
