The court denied bail to Abdul Mannan Akand and sent him to jail in the case of assault and attempted murder in Bogra.
Bogra Sadar Administrative Court Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Ahmed Shahriar Tariq gave this order around 10 am on Wednesday. This was confirmed by Court Inspector Subrata Banerjee. Earlier on September 14, railway employees beat up a railway employee named Raihan Ali while evicting hundreds of illegally constructed shops in the Kalyan Trust market car parking area. Raihan’s father, Haider Ali Sarkar, who was injured in the incident with allegations of attempted murder, theft and assault, filed a case (Case No. 894/22) against 51 people in the Sadar police station, making Abdul Mannan Akand, the contractor of the market construction, the main defendant. Abdul Mannan Akand appeared in Sadar Amli Court on Wednesday morning to take bail as the main accused in that case. Later, after the hearing of both sides, the court denied the bail of Abdul Mannan Akand and ordered him to be sent to jail. Abdul Mannan Akande’s lawyer Rezaul Karim Montu said, ‘A bail application was filed in the court. But the court did not approve it and ordered to send him to prison.
Court Inspector Subrata Banerjee said that Abdul Mannan Akand was handed over to the jail after receiving the court order. Meanwhile, local residents protested against Abdul Mannan Akande in the road construction area after several newspapers published reports against the irregularities in the 3.5 km road cupping work of Bogra Sadar’s second bypass road to Addigola Bazar by his contractor company Shukra Enterprises. Apart from this, Sudhi’s anger arose against him in the city because he maligned several people and institutions in the talk show on the online page called Shukra TV. Several people have complained to local journalists about this. It is noted that Abdul Mannan Akand is contesting as an independent candidate for the post of chairman in Bogra Zilla Parishad elections.
