The High Court (HC) on Sunday granted interim bail to suspended Shahjadpur municipality mayor Halimul Haque Miru over Daily Samakal's Shahjadpur correspondent Abdul Hakim Shimul murder.

A bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Md Mustafizur Rahman handed down the verdict in the court premises, said Md Yusuf Mahmud Morshed, assistant attorney general.

Earlier on February 2, 2017, journalist Shimul was shot during a clash between a Chhatra League faction and Shahjadpur Mayor Halimul Haque Miru's supporters.

Later, Shimul's wife Nurun Nahar filed a case accusing 18 individuals including the mayor. Now the mayor Miru is serving jail.
