The HC bench of Justice Mohammad Shawkat Hossain and Justice Nazrul Islam Talukder rejected a petition filed by Rana, now in jail, challenging the lower court order that framed charges against him in the case.
In the petition, he also prayed to the High Court seeking a stay order on the trial proceedings of the case.
The court passed the order after Rana’s lawyer Advocate Hedayet Kabir Khan prayed to the court to reject the petition considering that it was not properly submitted before the High Court.
There is no legal bar for the trial court to continue the trial of Faruk Ahmed murder case following the High Court order, Deputy Attorney General AKM Jahid Sarwar Kajol told The Daily Star.
A Tangail court on September 6 indicted ruling Awami League lawmaker Amanur Rahman Khan Rana and 13 other accused in murder case.
Faruk, the then AL publicity secretary of Tangail district unit, was shot dead on the night of January 18, 2013. Police submitted the charge sheet on February 3 in 2016.
