High Court grants interim bail to man on condition of marrying the survivor
The High Court has granted bail to a rape accused, who while availing interim bail married the survivor.
The accused, Sifat Sunny, was arrested on March 7 in a case filed with Rajshahi’s Chandrima police station on charges of raping a woman on the pretext of marriage and getting her pregnant.
On Sunday, Sifat married the woman in the presence of Rajshahi Metropolitan Magistrate Md Selim Raza, said plaintiff counsel Md Mokhlesur Rahman Swapan.
The relevant documents of the case, including the marriage certificate, have to be submitted to the metropolitan magistrate's court for Sifat to walk out of prison, he added.
Chandrima police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Imran Hossain said he is yet to receive court documents confirming the marriage, which will set Sifat free.
