MP Liton gets bail to attend Parliament session
08 November 2015, Nirapad News: A Gaibandha court on Sunday granted ad-interim bail to Awami League lawmaker Manjurul Islam Liton in a case filed for shooting a 10-year-old boy.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Moinul Hasan Yousuf granted him bail until the end of Parliament session which begins today.
bdnews24.com adds, there is no bar to releasing Islam, currently in jail after being arrested on charges allegedly firing at fourth-grader Shahadat Hossain Sourav, said lawyer.
“The court has granted him bail while Parliament is in session,” said Islam’s counsel Sirajul Islam Babu.
Sourav was injured on October 2 when Liton allegedly fired at him. His father Shaju Mia filed a case against Liton the next day.
On October 8, one Hafizur Rahman filed another case against Liton and nine others accusing them of vandalism and looting, in which the MP had been granted bail.
Liton moved the High Court on October 12 seeking anticipatory bail but his plea was scrapped.
Detectives arrested him from Dhaka’s Uttara two days later and sent him to Gaibandha.
