On Tuesday, Nasir and Omi got bail in the case filed by film actress Pori Moni
A Dhaka Court on Wednesday granted bail to real estate businessman Nasir U Mahmood in a narcotics case filed with Airport police station – against Nasir and Omi – over the recovery of liquor and yaba pills during their arrest.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Muhammad Jasim passed the order after Nasir’s counsel Zulfiqur Ali Haider filed a petition before the court seeking bail.
The court, however, rejected Tuhin Siddique Omi’s bail petition in the same case.
Nasir’s counsel said the court granted his bail for Tk5,000 bond in the case.
On Tuesday, the duo secured bail in the case filed by movie star Pori Moni on charges of attempted rape and murder
Police on June 15 pressed drug possession charges against Nasir, Omi and three others, a day after they were arrested in the case filed by Pori Moni.
The three others are Nazma Amin Brishti, 24, Lipi Akter, 18, and Sumi Akter, 19.
The FIR was filed against the five under the Narcotics Control Act with Airport police station in the early hours of June 15.
Drug-related charges were brought against them as some 1,000 yaba pills, foreign liquor and beer were seized from them at the time of their arrest.
Nasir, a former president of Uttara Club, is a member of the executive committee of Dhaka Boat Club (Entertainment and Culture). Omi was also a member of that club.
Actress Pori Moni alleged in her case that Omi took her to Dhaka Boat Club in the wee hours of Jun 9 and businessman Nasir Uddin Mahmood tried to rape and murder her there.
Later, the police arrested Omi and Nasir at a house in Uttara. The duo are accused in a drugs case at Airport Police Station over the seizure of liquor and yaba from the house.
Omi also runs another agency named Singapore Training Centre. The police seized 102 passports from the office of the agency at Dakkhinkhan on Jun 15, and started a case against him under the Passport (Offences) Act.
