DHAKA, A Dhaka court today sent two sons of the
owner of Wahed Mansion, from where the devastating Chawkbazar fire originated
killing 71 people on the night of February 20, to jail as they surrendered
Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Qaisarul Islam sent Md Hasan and his
brother Md Sohel alias Shahid to jail after scraping their bail plea.
The siblings surrendered through their lawyer and pleaded for fresh bail
as the tenure of their three weeks bail granted by the High Court ended. The
state however, opposed their plea. After hearing both the sides, the court
rejected the bail plea and sent them to jail.
A High Court division bench comprising Justice Jahangir Hossain and
Justice Md Riaz Uddin Khan on March 11 granted the siblings bail for three
weeks, asking them to cooperate with investigation officer of the case filed
over the deadly blaze.
The High Court at that time had asked them to surrender before lower
court once their bail period is over
