A high court in Bangladesh on Monday granted Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s (BNP) acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir bail for six months in a bombing case.

The bench of Justices Borhanuddin and K.M. Kamrul Kader issued the order on Monday, bdnews24.com reported.

The order would enable the BNP leader, now in Kashimpur jail in Dhaka, to secure release from prison, his lawyers said.

Earlier on April 3, Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Md. Zohurul Haque had denied him bail in the case.

Fakhrul has been accused in the case for inciting the bombing of a bus on November 30 last year during a blockade called by the BNP.

The BNP leader had earlier secured bail in three other cases.
