The government on Sunday decided to appeal against a High Court order that had granted two months’ interim bail to Tuba Group owner Delwar Hossain.
Deputy attorney general Shafiul Bashar Bhandari told New Age that the appeal was under process and that it would be moved before the appellate division vacation chamber judge on Tuesday (August 5).
The bench of Justice Syed AB Mahmudul Huq and Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder on July 24 had granted Delwar the bail for two months following an application that he would pay wages to the workers of his factories that were accumulated since February as he was in jail.
Delwar was still in Dhaka Central Jail as his bail order had not been signed by the judges till Sunday, said the DAG.
The Tuba owner is also the managing director of Tazreen Fashions Limited that was gutted in 2012, killing 112 workers.
He had surrendered before a Dhaka court in the Tazreen fire and homicide case.
