Pabna Assault Cases

8 more accused get bail

A Pabna court yesterday granted bail to eight leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) and Jubo League in one of the two cases filed for the attack on government officials during the recruitment test for the deputy commissioner's (DC) office last month.
Senior Judicial Magistrate of the Speedy Trial Tribunal Md Parvez Shahriar granted them bail.
The court also framed charges against 33 accused in the case, and fixed November 1 for hearing of the prosecution witnesses.
On September 28, Investigation Officer of the case Sub-inspector Anwar Hossain pressed charges against these accused. They include leaders and activists of BCL, Jubo League and Awami League.
The court however turned down the bail prayers of 17 other accused.
Those who got bail include Pabna district BCL unit President Ahmed Sharif Dablu, former president Mostafizur Rahman, former president of Edward College BCL unit Piyal, Organising Secretary of district Jubo League Zahir Hossain Rubel and its activists Raihan, Mazid, Sharif and Haroon.
Earlier, the court had granted bail to two other accused in the case-- BCL leader Santosh Kumar Hawladar and Jubo League leader Sazzad Rahman Sajal.
Assistant Public Prosecutor Ali Amzad Kaderi Sipar said the court yesterday granted bail to eight accused considering their age and the period they already stayed in jail custody.
Asked about this, a lawyer of Pabna court Murshed Subhani said although this is a case under non-bailable section, court can grant bail if it is satisfied with the grounds for seeking bail.
Two cases -- one for attacking administration officials and another for vandalising their cars-- were filed with Pabna Sadar Police Station accusing more than 100 people, including 31 leaders and workers of AL and its front organisations.
Twenty-one accused surrendered before the judicial magistrate's court on September 26 and four more on October 6. Besides, police arrested five people soon after the incident.
