The bench denies anticipatory bail to Bashundhara MD Anvir after the hearing

Multiple injuries were found on the body of college student Mosarrat Jahan Munia, who was found dead at a Gulshan flat in April this year, the High Court said citing the autopsy report.

The bench of Justice Mustafa Zaman Islam and Justice KM Zahid Sarwar said this on Wednesday while hearing a petition for anticipatory bail sought by Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir and his wife in a case involving the rape and murder of the college student.

The court struck off Anvir from the petition but granted a six-week anticipatory bail to the Bashundhara top official’s wife and moved to hear the next matter pending with the bench.

When Anvir’s counsel Yusuf Hossain Humayun continued to argue, the court stopped him and said: "The autopsy report says there were multiple injury marks on the body. We have several other matters to hear. For now we are granting bail to one of the accused [Anvir’s wife]." 

The bench then proceeded to hear the next matter and advised the lawyer to file a separate petition.

On April 26, police found 21-year-old Munia hanging from the ceiling fan of her bedroom in a Gulshan flat. 

Munia's elder sister filed the case on September 6 with a Dhaka court against Anvir accusing him of abetting suicide. 

On July 19,  police filed the final report with Dhaka’s Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court. 

On August 18, a Dhaka court relieved Anvir from the charge of abetting the suicide of college student Mosarat Jahan Munia. 

On September 6, Munia's elder sister filed a case with Dhaka's 8th Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal against eight persons, including Bashundhara Group Chairman Ahmed Akbar Sobhan, and his son Anvir, accusing them of rape and murder. 

The court ordered the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to open an investigation into the allegations.
