Washima Begum, who earlier secured six months’ bail from the High Court following constantly crying of her two children on the court premises, was released from jail custody on Thursday.
Defence lawyer confirmed the matter.
The HC bench comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman granted the bail on Wednesday (December 23).
At the same time, the HC bench ordered to send the bail order to the jail through email and fax as early as possible.
According to the case statement, Washima Begum and her husband Tofail Ahmed used to live with their two children–aged three and a half years and two and a half years–at the home of Washima’s mother Momena Begum in Old Dhaka.
In sequel to the family feud, the children’s grandmother Momena Begum filed a case with the Bangshal Police Station against her own daughter Washima Begum and son-in-law Tofail Ahmed bringing allegations of theft in her house and beating her.
Later, Bangshal police arrested the couple and produced them before Metropolitan Magistrate Mamunur Rashid’s court in Dhaka on December 2.
Magistrate Mamunur Rashid later sent both Washima and Tofail to jail rejecting their bail petition in the case. Since then they have been in jail.
On December 22, neighbours brought the two children to the court. But, the magistrate again rejected their parents’ bail petition in the case. Since then their children started crying profusely at the court premises.
