DSA Case

HC rejects Helena’s bail plea

The High Court on Tuesday rejected bail to Helena Jahangir, an expelled Awami League member and businessperson, over a case filed at Gulshan police station Under Digital Security Act.

The bench of Justice Md Rezaul Haque and Md Badruzzaman dismissed the bail petition as not presented at the court and as a result the accused will not be able to walk out of jail, reports UNB.

Lawyer Z I Khan Panna and Syed Fazle Elahi presented the petitioner’s side during the hearing while Additional Attorney General Sheikh Mohammad Morshed, Deputy Attorney General Dr Md Bashir Ullah and Deputy Attorney general AKM Amin Uddin appeared for the state.

Helena submitted a petition seeking bail from the High court last week.
