Former Home Minister Altaf secures bail, no bar to release

A Dhaka court has granted bail to BNP vice-chairman, former home minister and former air forces chief Air Vice Marshal (retd) Altaf Hossain Choudhury in a case filed over the attack on the official residence of the chief justice during BNP’s grand rally on October 28, 2023.

Dhaka Additional Metropolitan Magistrate Md Sultan Sohag Uddin passed the order on Thursday (February 22).

There is no legal bar for Altaf to release from jail as he secured bail in all cases filed against him centering BNP’s October 28 rally, said his lawyer Taherur Islam Towhid.

Earlier, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Altaf Hossain from Tongi area in Gazipur on November 5.
