Owners of Apan Jewellers get bail in 3 cases


PV Desk : The High Court on Thursday (December 14) granted bail to the three owners of the Apan Jewellers– Dildar Ahmed Selim, Gulzar Ahmed and Azad Ahmed– in three cases out of five filed against them.
The higher court, however, kept the bail petition in two other cases stand over for one month.
The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Shahidul Karim granted the bail after hearing separate rules in the cases filed over money laundering and income of illegal wealth. The hearing ended on Wednesday (December 13).
Senior lawyers of the Supreme Court AM Amin Uddin and Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh moved for the petitioners in the court, while deputy attorney general Farhad Ahmed and assistant attorney general Yusuf Mahbub Murshed stood on behalf of the state.
Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan represented for the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
Earlier on November 22, the High Court issued five separate rules asking the government to explain why the three owners of the Apan Jewellers should not be granted bail in the five cases.
