Dispose Shahidul's bail plea by Tuesday: HC - National

Dhaka: The High Court on Monday ordered the lower court concerned to dispose of the bail petition filed by renowned photographer and Drik Gallery managing director Shahidul Alam within Tuesday.

He is now in jail in a case filed under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act.

An HC bench comprising justice Rezaul Haque and justice Abu Taher Mohammad Saifur Rahman passed the order after hearing on the bail petition.

Sarah Hossain and Jyotirmoy Barua stood for Shahidul Alam. The bail petition was filed on August 28.

On September 4, one judge of a two-member High Court bench felt embarrassed to hear the bail petition.

Later, another bench was formed to hear the petition.

On August 5, detectives arrested ShahidulAlam from his Dhanmondi residence and the case was filed against him with Ramna Police Station on 6 August.
