Trial against Pori Moni to go on: HC

Published : Friday, 23 February, 2024 at 12:00 AM  Count : 68

The High Court (HC) on Thursday paved the way for the lower court concerned to continue the trial proceedings of a narcotics case against film actress Pori Moni.

The HC bench comprising Justice Mustafa Zaman Islam and Justice Md Aminul Islam delivered the verdict after disposing of a rule that questioned the trial proceedings of the case against her.

Lawyers ZI Khan Panna, Shah Monjurul Hoque, Syeda Nasrin and Md Shahinuzzaman appeared for Pori Moni while Deputy Attorney General Sarwar Hossain Bappi represented the state during hearing of the rule.

Later, Deputy Attorney General Sarwar Hossain Bappi told media that the HC disposed of the rule, saying the allegations brought against Pori Moni would be settled by the trial court concerned on the basis of evidence and depositions from witnesses.

On March 1 in 2022, in response to a criminal miscellaneous petition filed by Pori Moni, the HC had stayed the trial proceedings of the case.

It also issued the rule asking the government to explain why the proceedings against her should not be scrapped.

A Dhaka court on January 5, 2022 framed charges against Pori Moni and others -- Ashraful Islam Dipu and Kabir Hossain -- in a case filed under narcotics control act.

Kazi Golam Mostafa, Inspector of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and Investigation Officer of the case, submitted the charge sheet to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrates Court of Dhaka on October 4, 2021.

Members of Rapid Action Battalion detained Pori Moni and Dipu on August 4, 2021. They seized alcohol, ice and LSD from Pori Monis residence. The following day, the two were shown arrested in the case filed with Banani Police Station.

Later, Kabir was shown arrested in the same case.

On September 1, 2021, Pori Moni was released from jail on ad-interim bail, four weeks after her arrest.
