Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jashim passed the order as the accused surrendered before the court and pleaded for bail in the case.
“After hearing their bail pleas, the court allowed them bail on bond of Taka five thousand each,” defence counsel Ehsanul Haque Samaji told BSS.
The accused are Anisul Hoque, Prothom Alo senior sub-editor Mohitul Alam, head of event and activation Kabir Bakul, executives Shah Paran Tushar and Shuvashish Pramanik.
The court came up with the latest order a day after it directed the authorities concerned to confiscate properties of the five accused.
Ninth grader Naimul Abrar Rahat died after being electrocuted behind the stage at an event organised by the Kishor Alo, a publication of the Prothom Alo, at Dhaka Residential Model College ground on November 1, 2019.
On November 6, 2019, Naimul’s father Mojibur Rahman filed the case with the court in this connection.
