The High Court on Tuesday granted anticipatory bail to BNP Standing Committee Member Rafiqul Islam Miah over seven criminal cases that accuse him of violence. The High Court bench of justices Reza Ul Haq and Md Khasruzzaman gave the order.
The cases were filed at Dhaka’s Mirpur and Pallabi police stations over violence during the BNP-led 20-Party’s general strikes and blockade. In recent times, Miah has been avoiding public appearance. However, on Tuesday, he appeared before the court during the hearing of bail petition.
