Samrat’s bail hearing July 6

A court here on Tuesday fixed July 6 for holding hearing on a bail petition of ex-Jubo League leader Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat and framing charges against him in a case filed for amassing wealth beyond known legal income sources.

Judge Al Asad Mohammad Asifuzzaman of the Dhaka Special Judge Court-6 passed the order.

Today was fixed for the bail hearing and charge framing of the case. As Samrat was absent in the court due to health ground, the court fixed the date afresh, Samrat’s lawyer Shahnaz Parveen told BSS.

From March 31 to May 11 this year, Samrat was granted bail by the lower court in a total of four cases on health ground.

After receiving the bail papers on May 11, the jail authorities released Samrat.
