The Appellate Division on Wednesday directed the prison authorities to produce Awami League MP Amanur Rahman Khan Rana, now in the custody of Kashimpur Jail, in the case relating to murder of freedom fighter Faruk Ahmed at the next hearing of the trial court in Tangail.
A three-judge bench chaired by Chief Justice SK Sinha adjourned until October 15, hearing the petition of the accused seeking bail.
On February 3, 2016, the police pressed the charges against Amanur Rahman and 13 others including his three brothers in the murder case.
Faruk, then the publicity secretary of Tangail district Awami League, was shot dead and his body was left in front of his house in Tangail town on January 18, 2013.
Three days later, Faruk’s wife Nahar Ahmed filed a case with Tangail model police station.
Amanur Rahman was sent to jail custody on September 18, 2016 after he surrendered to a Tangail court after remaining absconding.
