The High Court has ordered to dispose of the bail plea of noted photographer and Drik Gallery managing director Shahidul Alam in a lower court by Tuesday.
An HC bench of Justice Rezaul Haque and Justice Abu Taher M Saifur Rahman passed the order on Monday after hearing on the bail petition of Alam who is now in jail in a case filed under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act.
Barrister Sarah Hossain and Barrister Jyotirmoy Barua stood for Shahidul Alam while Attorney General Mahbubey Alam represented the state.
The bail petition was filed on August 28.
After the hearing, Sara Hossain told media that one of the two judges of an HC bench felt embarrassed to hear the bail petition on September 4.
Later, the Chief Justice forwarded the petition to another bench for hearing.
Detectives arrested Alam from his Dhanmondi residence on August 5 and the case was filed against him with Ramna Police Station the following day.
