Surrender to district court: HC to MP Liton

Thereport24.com Correspondent, Dhaka:

The High Court has ordered Manjurul Islam Liton, lawmaker for Gaibandha’s Sundarganj constituency, to surrender to the lower court in the district by October 12, rejecting the MP’s petition that sought anticipatory bail.

A High Court vacation bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Bismadeb Chakrabortty handed down the order on Monday after Liton, who has been accused of shooting a child, appeared before it following the court order.

Earlier in the morning, Liton’s lawyer moved to the upper court with a bail plea, prompting the court to issue an order on the lawmaker to present before it by 01:00pm.

On October 02, Sourav sustained bullet injuries in his legs after shots were fired from Liton’s gun 2.

The victim’s father filed the case with Sundarganj Police Station against the parliamentarian the following day.

The incident triggered protests among locals.
