The High Court on Tuesday granted bail to Golam Maula Rony, a ruling party MP, in a case filed for assaulting two journalists of Independent Television.
An HC bench comprising Justice Nizamul Haque Nasim and Justice Kashifa Hossain passed the order.
Rony’s lawyers Barrister Ruhul Quddus Kajal, Adv Abdul Baset Majumdar and Adv Tobarak Hossain were present at the time.
Later, Barrister Ruhul Quddus Kajal told the reporters that the HC granted bail to Rony in a case for assaulting two journalists of Independent Television out of the three cases filed against him.
On July 25, a Dhaka court sent Rony to jail rejecting his bail prayer in the case filed for assaulting two Independent TV journalists Imtiaz Momin Sony and Mohsin Mukul Bakul.
Rony along with his supporters reportedly assaulted the duo on July 21 when they went to Rony’s office on the 9th floor of ‘Meherba Plaza’ at Topkhana Road in the city to verify some allegations against the MP.
A team of DB police arrested Rony from the city’s Badda area on July 24, only hours after the issuance of a warrant of arrest against him.
