Sunday, 22 August 2010

Bashundhara Group chairman Ahmed Akbar Sobhan alias Shah Alam was on Sunday granted bail in four cases where it is alleged he illegally took over government land.

The Bashundhara chairman sought bail after surrendering to Dhaka's Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's court at around 10.30am, his lawyer Roknuzzaman Prince confirmed to

Metropolitan magistrates Shahadat Hossain, Rashed Kabir and Dilara Alo Chandana granted the bails after separate hearings, he added.

The cases were filed by Kazi Sarwar Hossain, Hazera Parvin, Gazi Obaidul Kabir and M A Malek in 2007.

Prince also said that Shah Alam had earlier surrendered to the High Court in connection with the cases as arrest warrants had been issued against him.

"However, the High Court ordered him to surrender to the lower court within eight weeks," he added.

On Thursday, the defendant was granted bail by additional judge AHM Habibur Rahman of Dhaka's Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's court in another case alleging that he had illegally taken government land and fixed August 30 as the date for the framing of charges.

Roknuzzaman Prince said that lawyers Fazle Noor Tapash and Mohammad Mehedi Hasan Chowdhury would argue for Shah Alam in the four cases.
