In an uncommon gesture, state additional public prosecutor A. Goswami on Thursday refused to oppose the bail prayer of a Congress MLA.
The MLA, Hamidur Rahaman,was arrested in connection with the murder of a CPM local committee secretary, in Chopra, North Dinajpur.
When asked by the division bench of Justice N.A. Chowdhury and Justice A. Barua, the additional public prosecutor said the legislator should be allowed to attend the assembly, which is now in session. The bench asked the investigating officer to come to court on Monday when it will pronounce its order.
