Time Digital News: A list 337 BNP men from eight districts yesterday got six weeks' anticipatory bail from the High Court in 12 cases.
The cases were filed recently on charges of vandalising vehicles and obstructing police.
On Sunday, 220 more BNP leaders and activists from four districts got six weeks' anticipatory bail from the HC in nine similar cases.
Yesterday, the HC bench of Justice Md Rezaul Hasan and Justice Md Atabullah granted the bail after hearing 50 petitions filed by the accused seeking bail.
The bench also asked the accused petitioners to surrender before the lower courts concerned within six weeks.
Earlier in the day, the 337 accused BNP leaders and activists from Faridpur, Noakhali, Feni, Cumilla, Thakurgaon, Jhenidah, Narayanganj and Natore appeared before the HC bench for bail.
Petitioners' lawyers AM Mahbub Uddin Khokon and Md Ruhul Quddus Kazal told that police filed the "false" cases to harass the BNP men, though Awami League men attacked and beat them up during their agitation programmes.
