A Dhaka tribunal on Thursday cleared Mohammad Erfan Salim, son of Awami League leader and lawmaker Haji Mohammad Salim, in an arms case.

Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Dhaka Special Tribunal-1 passed the order accepting a probe report submitted by police clearing Erfan from the charges.

During the hearing, the prosecution lawyers also did not file any petition seeking further investigation in the case.

But Erfan cannot walk out of jail as he was yet to get bail in two other cases filed with two separate police stations in October last year.
