The High Court on Wednesday cancelled the bail granted to expelled Jubo League leader Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat in a case filed for amassing illegal wealth of Tk 29.4 million.
The court also directed Samrat to surrender to the lower court concerned in seven days in connection with the case.
The High Court bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Kazi Md Ejarul Haque Akondo passed the order
following a petition filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) seeking cancellation of the bail granted to Samrat.
The High Court has also warned the judge of the Special Judge Court-6 of Dhaka, Al Asad Md Asifuzzaman, for not considering the gravity of the case and granting bail to Samrat considering only his sickness without seeing any medical report.
The High Court has directed the lower court concerned to follow the law and Appellate Division directions during granting bail to anyone in future.
Earlier on May 11 this year Judge of the Special Judge Court-6 of Dhaka, Al Asad Md Asifuzzaman, granted bail to Samrat in the case after hearing a bail petition.
