Actress Eka gets bail in a case of torturing house help

A Dhaka court on Sunday granted bail to film actress Eka in a case of torturing a woman who worked as her house help.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Md Mamunur Rashid passed the order on a bond of Tk 10,000.

Earlier on August 10, Eka also got bail in another case filed under the Narcotics Control Act but she couldn’t walk out of jail as the case over torturing the maid was pending.

On Aug 1, the court sent Eka to jail after rejecting bail in two cases filed against her for reportedly torturing her housemaid and having narcotics at her home.

On July 31, Eka’s house help filed one of two cases against her for torturing and police filed another for keeping narcotic substances at her home. Both the cases were filed with Hatirjheel Police Station.

Police immediately arrested Eka from her Ulon apartment at Hatirjheel.
