Nazim Kamran, his brother, son-in-law released on bail

Former lawmaker Nazim Kamran Choudhury, husband of former adviser to a caretaker government Geeteara Shafiya Choudhury, his brother and son-in-law were set free on bail yesterday 16 hours after their arrest on Thursday night.
Gulshan police arrested them at around 11:00pm on Thursday night on charges of occupying a property in Gulshan forcibly.
Magistrate Kanika Biswas of Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's Court granted Kamran, his younger brother Mukim Choudhury and son-in-law Adit Bhagat bail on a bond of Tk 50,000 each.
According to Gulshan police, Dr Mahbubul Islam, owner of the house, filed a case accusing 11 tenants, including former adviser Geeteara on Thursday.
Investigation Officer of the case Sub-Inspector Masud Karim said that in the case statement Dr Mahbubul Islam stated that he came under an attack by the accused on July 17, 2008 when he tried to resist them from installing two generators at his house in Gulshan-2.
Gulshan police said they were looking for Geeteara who served as industries adviser to the past military-backed caretaker government but resigned with three other advisers.
The other accused are their daughter Nazim Farhana Choudhury, Abu Rushd Tareq, Shamsunnahar Tareq, Sakhawat Hossain alias Shahadat, Ripon Chandra Saha, Bipul Hossain and Yar Ali.
His wife Farhana Islam had filed a similar case with Dhaka District and Sessions Judge's Court in November 2007 against three companies of the Choudhury family on charges of illegal occupancy.
But the court quashed the case on January 25, 2008, as the report submitted by the investigation officer said that the allegation was 'not proved'.
