Khaleda’s bail in Cumilla murder case upheld

The Supreme Court has upheld a High Court order that granted BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia bail in a murder case filed following an arson attack in Cumilla in 2015 that left eight people killed.

A four-member bench of the Appellate Division, headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, passed the order on Sunday.

The SC rejected a petition filed by the state seeking a stay on the High Court order.

Khaleda Zia secured the six months' interim bail from the High Court on March 6.

On March 19, the government filed a petition with the Appallete Division challenging the HC order.

On February 3, 2015, a petrol bomb was hurled at a bus in Chouddagram on the Dhaka-Chattogram highway during the BNP-led 20-party alliance's countrywide blockade that left eight people killed and 20 injured.
