The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Sunday(January 8) upheld a High Court order granting bail to BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and Standing Committee Member Mirza Abbas.
A four-judge bench led by chief justice Hasan Foez Siddique passed the order dismissing the appeal of the government on Sunday.
The court also directed to dispose of the HC's ruling regarding it within the next 30 days.
The bail plea of Fakhrul and Abbas was turned down three times by the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) court of Dhaka.
The case was filed with Paltan Model Police Station on Dec 8, after a conflict took place on December 7 between BNP activists and police in front of the party's Nayapaltan central office.
The two BNP leaders have remained in jail since December 9, 2022 on December 10, 2022.
