Model and actress Romana Islam Swarna who was arrested in a fraud case has been released on bail. She has been granted bail in the custody of Saudi expatriate Kamrul Islam, who had filed a fraud case against her.

Romana Islam Swarna was granted bail by the court of Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) on Saturday.

AFM Moniruzzaman Mandal, General Registration Officer (GRO) of the concerned court, confirmed the matter to Daily Bangladesh. 

He said actress Swarna, who was in her “husband’s custody” before Eid, had appealed for bail. The court then granted her bail in the case.

Earlier on April 25, the accused Swarna was produced before the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court. The investigating officer of the case then appealed to keep her in jail till the end of the investigation of the case. After hearing both sides, the court rejected her bail petition and sent her to jail. 

Earlier on April 20, the investigating officer of the case appealed for a seven-day remand for the accused Swarna in the interest of proper investigation of the case. Following the petition, the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mamunur Rashid’s court granted her a one-day remand. 

Meanwhile, on March 11, Saudi expatriate Kamrul Islam filed a case against actress Swarna and six others for embezzling more than crores of takas through fraud. 

The next day, police arrested Swarna, her mother Shelly and her son Annafi. On March 22, the court ordered the interrogation of three people, including Swarna, at the jail gate. 

Noted that Romana Islam Swarna starred in the movie ‘Runout’ which was released in 2015. She was also a model for multiple TVCs.
