Staff Reporter :
A High Court bench on Saturday revoked its previous order that granted one- year interim bail to former Awami League leader Ruhul Amin, who allegedly instructed to rape a woman at Subarnachar in Noakhali on December 30.
The bench of Justice Mamnoon Rahman and Justice SM Kuddus Zaman withdrew the order of bail as the accused, Ruhul Amin, suppressed the fact that some other accused in the case had given confessional statement to the lower court against him.
In the confessional statement, the other accused said the incident of rape took place as per the instruction of Ruhul Amin. But this information was not mentioned in the bail petition filed by Ruhul Amin, the former publicity affairs secretary of Subarnachar AL unit. defense had suppressed the fact that some other accused in their confessional statements said that the incident of rape took place at the direction of Ruhul Amin. Then the judges today (Saturday) sat in their private chamber and passed the bail withdrawal order.
DAG Roy and DAG Amit Talukdar were present during passing of the withdrawal order.
Ruhul Amin's lawyer Asheke Rasul was not present there and his cell number was also found switched off.
After the judges passed the withdrawal order, Attorney General Mahbubey Alam told reporters at his office that the way Amin secured the bail from the HC is tantamount to a fraud upon the court.
It is a very hated move on behalf of the accused petitioner Amin. We will bring this issue to the chief justice's notice.
The AG said that his office would pray to the HC bench concerned to issue a contempt of court rule against the lawyer for Ruhul Amin.
Amin's lawyer Asheke Rasul gave a notice to the AG's office saying that he would move the bail petition of Amin before the HC bench led by Justice M Enayetur Rahim. But, he moved the bail petition before the HC bench led by Justice Mamnoon Rahman.
Petitioner's lawyer secured the bail for Ruhul Amin from the HC bench of Justice Mumnoon Rahman and SM Quddus Jamal without producing the confessional statements of other accused except for Amin in the case, the AG said.
Following today's HC order Amin would not be released from jail, he added.
Replying to a question, the AG said, his office will submit an application to the Bangladesh Bar Council for taking action against Asheke Rasul if it is necessary.
He said the whole nation is very concerned and angry at the rape incident.
People have become surprised at the rape accused securing bail, he said.
Following a bail petition filed by Ruhul, the same HC bench on March 18 granted a one-year bail to Ruhul Amin in the case. But he was not released from jail, Supreme Court Special Officer Mohammad Saifur Rahman added.
