The High Court on Wednesday granted permanent bail to former Awami League lawmaker from Tangail-3 (Ghatail) Amanur Rahman Khan Rana in a case filed over the killing of two Juba League leaders.
The High Court bench of Justice AKM Asaduzzaman and Justice SM Mozibur Rahman passed the order after hearing a rule in the case.
Earlier, the HC granted a six-month bail to Rana in the case.
It also issued a rule asking the government to explain as to why Rana should not be granted permanent bail in the case.
Advocate Monsurul Haque Chowdhury stood for the accused.
Baghil union Juba League leaders Mohammad Shamim and Mohammad Mamun went missing on July 16 in 2012 in Tangail district town.
The following day, Shamim’s mother filed a general diary with Tangail Sadar police station.
Later, police arrested several suspects over the incident when two of the arrested — Shahadat Hossain, 16, and Hiron Mia, 27, revealed that both of the Juba League leaders had been murdered as per the order of lawmaker Rana.
Rana surrendered to the Tangail additional district and session’s judge court on September 18, 2016 ending his 22-month fugitive run in the freedom fighter murder case.
The AL leader went into ‘hiding’ after he was accused of killing freedom fighter and member of district unit AL Faruk Ahmed.
On January 18, 2013, the Awami League leader was shot dead in front of his residence in the Tangail town.
Later, Faruk’s wife Nahar Ahmed filed a case in this connection.
Fourteen people, including four brothers of Tangail’s influential Khan family, were made accused in the murder case.
