The High Court (HC) on Wednesday has cancelled the bail of Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat, the expelled Jubo League leader and the alleged casino kingpin.
A two-judge bench of justices Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Kazi Md Ejarul Haque Akondo passed the order after a petition by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) challenging the bail order of a lower court on May 11.
The court also asked Samrat to surrender before a lower court within seven days, said deputy attorney general AGM Amin Uddin.
Earlier, the court granted bail to Samrat on three conditions on a bond of Tk 10,000 till June 9 in a case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC). Now, the High Court canceled the bail.
On May 16, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) appealed to the High Court to cancel the bail order in a case filed by ACC itself in 2019.
There are a total of four cases - arms, drugs, money laundering and graft against Samrat. The members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Samrat from Chauddagram in Cumilla on October 7, 2019, over the casino business.
