Selima Rahman, two women lawyers get bailCourt Correspondent
A Dhaka court on Tuesday granted bail to Bangladesh Nationalist Party vice-chairperson Selima Rahman, who was detained by police on Monday when she tried to bring out a procession during the second day of general strike enforced by the party.
Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Abdul Kader also granted bail to two other BNP activists Sheuly and Jeba Khan, both of them lawyers, in the same case.
The court, however, denied bail to seven BNP activists — Sultana Ahmed, Sanzida Akther, Amena Khatun, Sadia Haque, Momtaz Begum, Jobeda Akther Joti and Shirin — in the same case filed under Section 54 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
Police arrested the 10 female leaders of opposition BNP, including Selima Rahman, at Mohakhali, where they tried to bring out a procession in support of the general strike enforced by the party demanding immediate release of its organising secretary M Elias Ali, who went missing on April 18.
The Gulshan police produced them on Tuesday to the CMM court seeking the ten to be remanded in police custody for three days for interrogation.
The court rejected the police prayer and remanded the seven women activists, who were denied of bail, in jail.
It also asked the investigation officer of the case to submit the investigation report by Thursday noon.
Meanwhile, the pro-BNP lawyers brought out a procession in court area demanding bail for the 7 BNP women leaders.
