Virtual court in Dhaka grants first bail

A virtual court in Dhaka for the first time in country’s history granted bail on Tuesday to two accused in a case filed over a robbery in the city's Banani area in March this year.

Metropolitan Magistrate MD Sarafuzzaman Ansary passed the order upon hearing through video conferencing after lawyers of the accused submitted a petition through email.

The two accused in the case are Md Liton and Md Sumon. The duo was arrested on March 22 from Banani and has been in jail since then. 

Meanwhile, hearings of five other cases are scheduled to take place at virtual courts today.
