The High Court has postponed the hearing on a rule on the bail of Bangladesh Nationalist Party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir in a case over the vandalism of the Chief Justice’s residence until next week.

The HC bench of Justice Md Saleem and Justice Shahed Nuruddin deferred the hearing on Wednesday after Fakhrul’s lawyer Waliur Rahman sought more time to prepare for the hearing, citing ‘personal circumstances’.

Advocate Waliur Rahman stood for Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir while deputy attorney general BM Abdur Rafel represented the state.

Earlier on December 7, the High Court issued a rule asking the government to explain why Fakhrul should not be granted bail in the case.

The government was asked to respond to the rule within a week.

On December 17, the High Court fixed January 3 for hearing on the rule.

On October 29, police filed a case with Ramna Police Station on charges of vandalism and attack on the Chief Justice’s residence during a BNP rally on October 28.

Fakhrul was arrested in the case on October 29 and has been in jail since then.
