The High Court (HC) has granted six months interim bail to former minister Abdul Latif Siddiqui in a case filed by Anti- Corruption Commission (ACC).


A High Court division bench comprising Justice Obaidul Hassan and Justice AKM Zahirul Huq passed the order on Monday, clearing way for releasing the former textiles and jute minister from jail.

Advocate Shah Manjurul Hoque moved the bail plea for Siddiqui, while advocate Khurshid Alam Khan stood for ACC.

The anti graft body lawyer said they would file an appeal against this order.

According to the case documents, ACC assistant director Aminul Islam filed the case against two including Latif Siddiqui with Adamdighi Police Station, Bogura, on October 17, 2017.

The two were accused of causing loss of Taka 40.70 lakh to state exchequer by selling a land in Adamdighi upazila owned by Bangladesh Jute Corporation, without floating any formal tender.

The other accused is the buyer of that land Jahanara Rashid of Bogura town.
