Sikder Group MD Ron Haque gets bail

A Dhaka court today granted interim bail to Ron Haque Sikder, managing director (MD) of Sikder Group, after he was produced before the court in connection with an attempted murder case.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Ashek Imam's court passed the order after the hearing on Friday. 

The police produced Ron Haque before the court with an application to keep him in jail till the end of the investigation in the attempted murder case in Gulshan. On the other hand, his lawyers applied for bail. After hearing both the parties, the court granted him bail on a bond of Tk 5,000. 

Earlier, Ron was arrested from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 10 am today after he returned home after receiving the news of his father's death. He was shown arrested in a case filed by Exim Bank.

On May 19 last year, Exim Bank authorities filed a case against Ron Haque Sikder and his brother Dipu Haque Sikder at Gulshan Police Station on charges of attempted murder of two Exim Bank MDs. After the case, the two brothers left the country in an air ambulance. They flew to Thailand on their own chartered plane.

According to case details, the whole incident involved a loan offer of Tk 500 crore. Two Exim Bank officials were called in to inspect the mortgaged property in return for the loan.

At that time, the MD and additional MD of the bank mentioned that the mortgage value of the property was less as security. Ron Haque Sikder and Dipu Haque Sikder forcibly signed a white paper with the bank's MD.

Meanwhile, Ron Haque Sikder's father Zainul Haque Sikder, Chairman of Sikder Group, died at a hospital in Dubai on Wednesday.
