HC asks govt to admit Manna to cardiac hospital

UNB . Dhaka | Update:

The High Court on Tuesday ordered the authorities concerned to admit Nagorik Oikya convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna to Ibrahim Cardiac Hospital & Research Institute for treatment.

A bench of Justice Salma Masud Chowdhury and Justice Kazi Md Ejarul Haque Akondo passed the order upon a rule hearing, said Manna’s lawyer Idrisur Rahman.

Earlier on May 21, the court issued two separate rules asking the government to explain in three weeks as to why Mahmudur Rahman Manna, currently in jail, should not be granted bail in two cases.

The two cases were filed with Gulshan Police Station on February 24 and March 5 last year on charges of provoking the army and sedition.

Earlier, a lower court scrapped Manna’s bail prayers in the two cases filed with Gulshan Police Station last year.

He then moved the High Court for bail citing health issues.

Manna was arrested on February 25 last year after two audio clips of his telephone conversations with BNP leader Sadeque Hossain Khoka and another unidentified man were leaked.
