MP Rana`s bail plea rejected27 September 2016 bdnews24.com
A Tangail court has thrown out the bail plea of Awami League MP Amanur Rahman Khan Rana, who is detained in jail pending trial over the murder of freedom fighter Faruk Ahmed.
The Tangail-3 legislator appealed for bail to attend the ongoing session in Parliament on Sunday, court police's Inspector Anwarul Islam said.
First Additional District and Sessions Judge Abul Mansur Mia dismissed his petition on Monday.
On January 18, 2013, Tangail Awami League leader Faruk's bullet-riddled body was found in front of his home at the town's College Parha.
His wife Nahar Ahmed filed the murder case at Tangail Model Police Station three days later.
Police pressed charges against 14 people, including Rana and his three brothers, in February this year.
The ruling party MP on Sep 18 surrendered before the same court.
The court that day had sent him to jail after rejecting bail plea. Rana is currently lodged in Kashimpur prison in Gazipur.
