The High Court (HC) issued on Tuesday a rule asking the government to explain as to why former Awami League leaders Enamul Haque Enu and his brother Rupon Bhuiyan should not be granted bail in a case filed by Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), reports UNB.

A HC bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Ahmed Sohel issued the rule rejecting the bail petitions of Enamul and Rupon.

The authorities concerned have been asked to respond to the rule within two weeks.

Advocate Syed Mamun Mahbub stood for the two brothers while Advocate Khurshid Alam for ACC and deputy attorney general AKM Amin Uddin Manik represented the state.

On June 15, Senior Special Judge AKM Imrul Kayesh rejected the bail petition of the two brothers in the case. Later, they filed a petition before the HC.

On February 25, members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in a drive recovered Tk 265.5 million in cash, FDRs worth Tk 51.5 million and different foreign currencies from a house belonging to Enamul and his brother Rupon in the city's Wari area.
