The interim bail granted to former Tangail MP Amanur Rahman Khan Rana in the murder case of two Juba League leaders has been stayed.
The order came on Thursday (Mar 14) after the state moved the Supreme Court’s chamber judge challenging the High Court’s order.
The order means that Rana, who was granted a six-month bail in the murder of Awami League leader Faruk Ahmed earlier in the day, will not be released from prison.
Rana was granted bail in the murder of Juba League leaders Mohammad Shamim and Mohammad Mamun on Mar 6.
The Baghil union Juba League leaders went missing on Jul 16, 2012. 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, claimed both of the Juba League leaders had been murdered on Rana's orders.
Rana surrendered to the Tangail additional district and session's judge court on Sept 18, 2016 after he was a fugitive for 22 months in the murder case. He went into hiding after he was accused of killing Freedom Fighter and member of the Awami League district unit Faruk Ahmed.
