27 days after her arrest, Pori Moni, a popular actress of Dhaka film, was granted bail on a bond of Tk 20,000 in a case under the Narcotics Control Act with Banani Police Station.
A bail hearing was held in the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Kayes at 2 pm on Tuesday. After the hearing, the court granted Pori Moni’s bail petition.
Since Pori Moni is a film actress and a woman, moreover, her starring schedule is running in a government-sponsored film titled ‘Pritilata’. Considering these issues, the court ordered her bail till the investigation report (chargesheet) is submitted.
On August 22, Pori Moni’s lawyer submitted a 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 petition, the lawyer questioned the “delay in setting the date” for the 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.
