The High Court on Wednesday issued a split order on bail prayers in two cases by city south mayor candidate Mirza Abbas.
A bench comprising of Justice Quamrul Islam Siddique and Justice Gabinda Chandra Tagore gave the order.
Although Abbas is absent in the publicity campaign in city corporation polls scheduled to be held on April 28, he was present in the court on Wednesday.
The senior judge of the bench granted BNP leader Mirza Abbas for three weeks' bail in two cases but other judge rejected the bail prayers.
As per the procedure, bail hearing of these two violence cases of Paltan and Motijheel would now be forwarded to Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha who would form another bench to settle it.
Dhaka Mohanagar BNP convenor Mirza Abbas has to wait for securing bail.
Earlier, Abbas went into hiding for about three months during the agitation by the BNP-led 20-party alliance to press home its demand to hold a fresh election under a neutral administration.
After becoming mayor candidate from Dhaka south city corporation, he appeared before the public on Monday for securing bail in two cases of violence.
In the court, Khandker Mahbub Hossain and A J Mohammad Ali heard on behalf of Abbas while attorney general Mahbuby Alam represented the state.
