Parvez was granted bail after no specific allegations were found against him 

The High Court has granted bail to an accused in a case filed over the trafficking and murder of 26 Bangladeshi migrants in Libya. 

The bench of Justice Jahangir Hossain Selim and Justice Md Badruzzaman passed the order after Parvez Hasan’s lawyer sought bail on his behalf on Thursday.

Parvez was granted bail as no specific allegations were found against him over the trafficking and murder of the 26 Bangladeshis, said Deputy Attorney General (DAG) Dr Md Bashir Ullah.

However, the government will move an appeal before the Appellate Division challenging the bail order, he added.

Several cases were filed on charges of human trafficking after the massacre in Libya on May 28.

Parvez was shown as arrested on August 4 in one of the cases filed with the Paltan Police Station on June 2.
