BNP leaders Khokon, Milon walk out of jail

BNP leaders Khairul Kabir Khokon and Fazlul Haque Milon were freed from jail on bail on Wednesday.

They walked out of Dhaka Central Jail in Keraniganj around 2 pm after the bail order reached the jail authorities, said BNP’s publicity secretary Rashedul Haque.

Leaders and activists of BNP received BNP Joint Secretary General Khokon and former organizational secretary Milon at the jail gate.

On December 7 last year, a Swechchasebak Dal leader was killed and around 50 others were injured in a clash between police and the BNP activists in front of the party’s Nayapaltan central office, ahead of its December 10 rally.

Police arrested 470 BNP activists and leaders in connection with the clash and they were sued in two cases filed with Paltan and Motijheel police stations.

Khairul Kabir Khokon and Fazlul Haque Milon were arrested on the same day following the clash.
