Actress Semon Hasan Eka
A Dhaka court on Sunday granted bail to film actress Semon Hasan Eka in a case filed over beating a domestic help at Hatirjheel police station in the capital.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mamunur Rashid's court granted her bail on Sunday. Meanwhile, there is no obstacle to her release as she has been granted bail in another case filed under Narcotics Control Act.
Eka's lawyer applied for bail. The state, on the other hand, opposed bail. After hearing both the parties, the court granted her bail plea.
Earlier, on August 10, the accused in the Narcotics Control Act case at Hatirjheel police station applied for bail on behalf of his lawyer alone. The state, on the other hand, opposed bail. After hearing both the parties, the virtual court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Atiqul Islam granted him bail on a bond of Tk 1,000.
On July 31, Hajera Begum, a domestic help, filed a case against actress Eka alleging torture, and another case was filed against her by Hatirjheel Police Station SI Nazrul Islam.
On August 1, the court sent Eka to jail after rejecting bail in two cases filed against her on charges of torturing her housemaid and having narcotics at her home.
The injured housemaid is from Harindhara village of Sherpur Sadar. Her husband's name is Rafiq. At present they are living at Rampura Bandhu Nibas area of East Ulun in the capital.
