The activists were released after relevant bail documents were received by the jail authorities, Dhaka Central Jail Jailer Mahbubul Islam confirmed told the Dhaka Tribune.

Earlier, on Tuesday, a Dhaka court granted bail to 20 quota reform movement leaders and activists, including several joint conveners of the Bangladesh General Students’ Rights Protection Council (BGSRPC).

Out of the 20, 19 were arrested over the past few months in a case filed over the vandalism of the Dhaka University (DU) vice-chancellor’s (VC) official residence in April. The others were accused in a case filed under the ICT Act over the spreading of rumours on social media surrounding the movement demanding reformation of the quota system in government jobs.

The seven quota movement leaders who were granted bail were Faruk Hasan, Rashed Khan, Jasim Uddin, Toriqul Islam, Ratul Sarker, Md Mashiur Rahman and APM Suhel.
