Bangladeshis killed in Libya: Female accused gets bail

The High Court on Tuesday granted bail to a woman arrested in a case filed over the trafficking of 26 Bangladeshis killed in Libya in May.

 

The bench of Justice Jahangir Hossain and Justice Md Badruzzaman passed the order.

 

Advocate Kamruzzaman Kochi stood for the accused and Deputy Attorney General Dr Md Bashir Ullah represented the state.

 

Bashir said Mosammat Sanjida secured bail as she is not facing specific accusation of human trafficking.

 

They will file review appeal challenging the bail order, he said.

 

Sanjida was arrested on June 8 in a case filed against her and 35 others at Paltan Police Station.

 

On June 1, Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) arrested Kamal Hossain alias Hazi Kamal, 55, the ringleader of a human trafficking gang from Khilbarirtek at Shahadatpur in Madaripur town.

 

Human traffickers killed 30 migrant workers in Libya in a smuggling warehouse in Mezda, southwest of Tripoli on May 28.

 

Later, warlord Haftar’s militiaman Khaled Al-Mishai, who was allegedly responsible for murder of 26 Bangladeshis and four African migrants, was killed in a drone strike by the Libyan Air Force.
