Dhaka: The High Court on Monday granted anticipatory bail to BNP standing committee member Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury in two cases filed for ‘instigating’ the student movement over road safety and ‘conspiring’ against the state.
An HC bench comprising Justice Muhammad Abdul Hafiz and Justice Bhishmadev Chakrabortty passed the order after the BNP leader surrendered before the court and prayed for bail in the cases.
Of the cases, one was filed with Shahbagh Police Station in the capital and the other with Kotwali Police Station in Chattogram on August 4.
Amir Khosru was sued as a reported audio clip of his telephonic conversation with a boy over intensifying the recent student movement went viral on Facebook and YouTube on August 4.
