The Appellate Division on Monday upheld the High Court order that granted bail to former Awami League MP from Tangail-3 (Ghatail) Amanur Rahman Khan Rana in a case filed over the killing of freedom fighter and member of district unit AL Faruk Ahmed.
A four-member Appellate Division bench, headed led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, passed the order rejecting an appeal filed by the state.
Advocate Abdul Baset Mazumder and Advocate Ataur Goni stood for Rana and Deputy Attorney General Bishwajit Debnath for the state.
Earlier on March 14, the HC granted bail to Rana in the case.
On the same day, the SC stayed a High Court order that granted bail to Rana in a case filed over the killing of two Jubo League leaders.
Rana surrendered to the Tangail additional district and session’s judge court on September 18, 2016 ending his 22-month fugitive run in the freedom fighter murder case.
On January 18, 2013, the Awami League leader was shot dead in front of his residence in the district town.
Later, Faruk’s wife Nahar Ahmed filed a case in this connection.
