Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayesh fixed the new date for the hearing.
The hearing date was fixed after the High Court’s August 26 rule, asking the lower court concerned to reply as to why it shall not pass an order to hear Pori Moni’s bail within two days of receiving the High Court’s order.
The High Court in its rule also asked as to why it shall not quash the lower court's August 22 order that had set September 13 for holding a hearing on the actor's bail plea in the narcotics case.
