A Dhaka court on Tuesday granted bail to film actress Pori Moni in a narcotics case.
Dhaka Metropolitan Session Judge KM Imrul Kayes passed the bail order upon a bond of Tk 50,000.
In August 22, Pori Moni’s lawyer submitted the bail petition and the court set September 13 to hold a hearing.
Later, her lawyer Mozibur Rahman went to the High Court challenging the lower court’s decision. He also sought interim bail for the actress in the petition.
On August 26, the High Court issued a rule asking why the bail plea of Dhallywood star Pori Moni in a drugs case should not be heard sooner.
On August 21, Pori Moni was presented before the court and sent to jail after the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) inspector Kazi Golam Mostafa produced her before the court on completion of a one-day remand. No bail petition was submitted on her behalf that day.
The latest bail plea was filed a day after she expressed her anguish at her lawyers for not filing the bail petition.
Later a case was filed against the popular Dhallywood actress after law enforcers claimed to have found illegal alcohol and drugs in her house.
Pori Moni made headlines in June after she went on Facebook live accusing businessman Nasir U Mahmood and others of trying to rape and kill her at Boat Club on the city’s outskirts.
