SC stays HC order granting bail to former MP Rana

The Appellate Division yesterday stayed till July 1 the permanent bail granted by the High Court to former Awami League MP from Tangail-3 (Ghatail) Amanur Rahman Khan Rana in a case filed over killing of two Juba League leaders.

Chamber Judge Justice Md Nuruzzaman passed the order after hearing on a petition and sent it to the full bench of the Appellate Division for further hearing. Barrister Monsurul Haque Chowdhury stood for the petitioner while Attorney General Mahbubey Alam and Deputy Attorney General Dr Bashir Ullah represented the state.

The High Court on Wednesday granted permanent bail to Rana in the case. Baghil union Juba League leaders Mohammad Shamim and Mohammad Mamun went missing on July 16, 2012 in the district town. The following day, Shamim's mother filed a general diary with Tangail Sadar police station. Later, police arrested several suspects over the incident when two of the arrestees - Shahadat Hossain, 16 and Hiron Mia, 27 -- revealed that both of the Juba League leaders had been murdered as the order of MP Rana.
