A Dhaka court granted bail to Dhallywood actor Pori Moni on a bond of Tk 20,000 in a case filed under the Narcotics Control Act.
Dhaka Metropolitan Session Judge KM Imrul Kayes announced the verdict at 2:00 pm on Tuesday after a bail hearing.
Earlier on Sunday, following an order of the High Court, the same court brought forward to August 31 the date to hear the plea seeking bail for the film actress in the case.
On August 22, Pori Moni's lawyer submitted the bail petition and the court set September 13 to hold a hearing.
Later, her lawyer Mozibur Rahman went to the High Court challenging the lower court's decision. In the application, the lawyer questioned the delay in setting the date for bail hearing. He also sought interim bail for the actress in the petition.
On August 21, Pori Moni was presented before the court and sent to jail after the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) inspector Kazi Golam Mostafa produced her before the court on completion of a one-day remand. No bail petition was submitted on her behalf that day.
The latest bail plea was filed a day after she expressed her anguish at her lawyers for not filing the bail petition.
Pori Moni has been remanded three times for interrogation by police since Rab arrested her on August 4 from her Banani residence. Later a case was filed against the popular Dhallywood actress after law enforcers claimed to have found illegal alcohol and drugs in her house.
