The High Court on Tuesday granted six months’ bail to Bazlus Samad Adnan, the owner of New Wave Bottoms and New Wave Styles Garments, accused in a case relating to the Rana Plaza disaster that had killed 1,135 workers and maimed scores.
The bench of Justice Syed AB Mahmudul Huq and Justice Md Akram Hossain Chowdhury also asked the government to explain why Bazlus Samad should not be granted a regular bail.
The bench passed the order after hearing the bail petition moved by Supreme Court lawyer AM Amin Uddin.
Bazlus Samad was among the 12 people accused in the case filed following the collapse of the eight-storey Rana Plaza in Savar, which had housed five clothing factories, a shopping mall and a bank.
Other accused include Rana Plaza owner Sohel Rana, Ether Tex Ltd chairman Anisur Rahman, also known as Anisuzzaman, and Phantom Apparels Ltd and Phantom Tack Ltd chairman Aminul Islam.
