Fakhrul released on bail
BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir was released on bail from Kashimpur Jail in Gazipur this evening.
Fakhrul walked out of the jail around 7:50pm, Sayrul Kabir Khan, a media wing staff of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, told The Daily Star.
The Supreme Court yesterday upheld the High Court orders that had granted bail to Fakhrul in three cases.
A four-member bench of the Appellate Division of the SC headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha passed “no order” on three government petitions filed on November 26, seeking a stay on the HC bail orders.
Following three bail petitions, the HC on November 24, granted bail to Fakhrul for three months in the cases filed for vandalising and torching vehicles in the capital on January 4, 5 and 6 this year.
