A Dhaka court on Sunday granted interim bail to former Awami League lawmaker Khan Tipu Sultan and his wife Jasmine Ara on surrender in a case filed for killing their daughter-in-law Shamarukh Mahjabin.
Judge (in-charge) Ruhul Amin of the Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge's Court passed the order as Tipu Sultan and his wife pleaded for bail on surrender in the morning.
Earlier on November 16, the High Court granted a four-week anticipatory bail to former lawmaker and his wife.
Shamarukh Mahjabin was found dead at Dhanmondi residence of her in-laws in the capital on November 13.
Humayun and Shamarukh had got married in April last year. She did MBBS from Holy Family Red Crescent Medical College and was preparing for FCPS.
