The High Court on Thursday granted a six-month bail to former Awami League lawmaker Amanur Rahman Khan Rana in the Freedom Fighter Faruk Ahmed murder case.
The HC bench of Justice AKM Asaduzzaman and Justice SM Mozibur Rahman passed the order after hearing a petition filed by Rana seeking bail in the case.
On January 18, 2013, Faruk Ahmed, also the Awami League leader, was shot dead in front of his residence in the district 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.
The Awami League MP 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.
Rana had been denied bail on several occasions by both the Tangail trial court and the High Court.
