Film actress Pori Moni will appear at the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday in the case filed by the RAB under the Narcotics Control Act.

“Pori Moni will appear in court at 10:30 am,” confirmed her lawyer Mojibur Rahman to the media on Tuesday.  

Judge KM Imrul Kayes of the Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge’s Court granted bail to Pori Moni on August 31 after a hearing.

Earlier on August 22, Pori Moni’s lawyer Mojibur Rahman had appealed for bail in the court of KM Imrul Kayes. The court then fixed September 13 for the hearing. 

As the date was fixed for a longer period, Pori Moni’s lawyers went to the High Court, seeking bail as soon as possible.

Following the High Court’s order, Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Kayes adjourned the bail hearing to August 31 instead of September 13.

RAB arrested Pori Moni and her accomplice Dipu from Banani resident in the capital on August 4. At that time, different types of drugs were recovered from Pori Moni’s house. 

The next day, on August 5, RAB-1 filed a case against Pori Moni and her accomplice under the Narcotics Control Act with Banani Police Station.

Later, Pori Moni was remanded for a total of seven days in three phases - 4-day remand in 1st phase on August 5, 2-day remand in 2nd phase on August 10 and one-day remand in 3rd phase on August 19. The actress is currently on bail.
