Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Md Yusuf Hossain passed the above order after rejecting his bail prayer.
On Monday morning, Shahdat along with his lawyer Advocate Kazi Nazibullah Hiru entered the court of Metropolitan Magistrate Md Yusuf Hossain and sought bail.
In his bail hearing the Shahadat counsel said to the court that Shahadat does not acquainted with the Kitchen's matter and he has no involvement with the offence so he is entitled to get the bail.
