Staff Reporter : The High Court on Wednesday refused to grant bail to Nazmul Hossain alias Babu, an accused of spreading rumour on social media over Padma Bridge construction, in a case filed under Digital Security Act. But the court issued a rule upon the respondents to explain in four weeks as Â to why Nazmul Hossain alias Babu should not be granted bail in the case. The High Court bench of Justice Md Shawkat Hossain and Justice Fatema Najib passed the order after hearing a bail petition filed by Nazmul. Advocate Helal Uddin Molla appeared in the court on behalf of Nazmul while Deputy Attorney General AKM Aminuddin Manik stood for the state. Police arrested Nazmul on July 25 from Narail for spreading rumour that 'Human head will be needed for construction of Padma Bridge' on Facebook. Earlier on that day, a case had been lodged with the Narail Sadar Police Station under the Digital Security Act against 35 to 40 anonymity including Nazmul on the charge of deteriorating the law and order situation. He refused bail on August 19 from a trail court of Narail in the case. Then he filed appeal petition with the High Court against the trial court order.
