Pori Moni case: Nasir, Omi get bail

Uttara Club Limited former president Nasir U Mahmud and his associate Tuhin Siddiqui Omi have been granted bail in an attempted rape and murder case filed by actress Pori Moni.

Dhaka Senior Judicial Magistrate Shahjadi Tahmidar passed the bail order after a court hearing on Tuesday. The court's General Registration Officer (GRO) ASI Osman Munshi confirmed the matter. 

The accused were produced before the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate's Court on remand. The investigating officer of the case then requested to keep them in jail till the end of the investigation. At that time, their lawyers applied for bail on behalf of the accused. The state, on the other hand, opposed bail. After hearing both the parties, the court granted bail till July 8 on a bond of Tk 5,000.

Actress Pori Moni filed the case with Savar Police Station against Nasir, also a real-estate businessman and presidium member of Jatiya Party, Omi, and four others on June 14.

After that, Dhaka Senior Judicial Magistrate Kamrun Nahar accepted the statement of the case and directed to submit the investigation report by July 8. Later, the Metropolitan Detective Branch (DB) police arrested five people, including Nasir Uddin, from their house on Uttara-1 Sector-12 Road.

On June 23, the two accused were produced before the court. Their lawyer then canceled the remand and applied for bail. The state, on the other hand, opposed bail. After hearing both the parties, the court granted them five days each. Earlier on June 15, the investigating officer of the case applied for a remand for ten days including showing the arrest of Nasir and Omi in the case filed by Pori Moni.
