In their final report, police have claimed not to have found any evidence supporting the charges against Erfan in the cases

A Dhaka court on Tuesday granted bail to Erfan Selim, son of Dhaka-7 lawmaker and Awami League leader Haji Md Salim, in two cases in which he was sentenced to one year imprisonment by a mobile court.

Dhaka Additional District Magistrate Bhaskar Debnath Bappi passed the order on the condition that Erfan appears before the court every week in connection with the cases.

Erfan’s counsel Pran Nath said they filed two petitions with the court challenging the one-year imprisonment of Erfan Selim by the mobile court for possession of alcohol and walkie-talkies.

After the hearing, the court granted bail to him in both the cases.

On October 26, last year, Erfan, also a councillor of Dhaka south City Corporation’s ward-30 was sentenced by a Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) mobile court to six months jail over recovery of illegal alcohol and another six months for possessing unregistered walkie-talkies.

Meanwhile, Chawkbazar police on Monday submitted a final report with the court clearing Erfan of charges in two other cases saying that they did not find enough evidence to prove the charges against him in the two cases.

The two cases were filed under the narcotics control and arms acts on October 27 following a raid conducted by RAB at MP Haji Salim’s Old Dhaka residence in the capital’s Chawkbazar area. 

Police, however, submitted charge sheets against Erfan’s bodyguard Zahidul Mollah in two other cases filed under narcotics control and arms acts as they found the allegations as true. 

Erfan and Zahidul Mollah were arrested after a case was filed against him on charge of reportedly attacking Lt Wasif Ahmed Khan of Bangladesh Navy in Dhanmondi area of the capital on October 25 last year.
