The High Court on Monday granted bail to BNP leaders Joynal Abedin Farooque and Barkatullah Bulu in three separate criminal cases.
Farooque got bail in an arson case filed under Paltan Police Station on January 6, 2015. Barkatullah Bulu secured bail in two other cases filed with Mohammadpur and Jatrabari Police Station in 2015.
The High Court bench consisting of Justice Md Rezaul Haque and Justice Muhammad Khurshid Alam Sarkar granted them six months bail after hearing three separate petitions filed by the accused seeking bail in the cases.
Barrister Saqed Mahbub, lawyer of both the leaders, said that his clients cannot get released from jail following the High Court order as they have been shown arrested in other cases.
