The court has postponed the date of taking evidence against Pari Mani in the Narcotics Control Act case filed at Banani Police Station of the capital and fixed it on February 20.
The case was for taking evidence in the court of Judge Mohammad Nazrul Islam of Dhaka Special Judge Court-10 on Sunday. However, on this day Pari Mani’s lawyer told the court that the hearing on the suspension of the case from the Appellate Division has ended.
At this time, Pari Mani’s lawyer applied for the postponement of the testimony until the suspension order is issued. The court allowed the application and fixed the next new date.
Azad Rahman, the state lawyer of the concerned court, confirmed this information.
On this day, his lawyer appeared on behalf of Pari Mani. Pari Mani’s manager Ashraful Islam Dipu and Khalu Kabir Howladar also appeared in the court.
On January 9, Pari Mani’s drug case proceedings will be suspended for six months. A three-member bench led by Nuruzzaman gave the order.
