A Cox's Bazar court on Sunday granted bail to Shipra Rani Debnath who was arrested and sent to jail in a narcotics case following the killing of former army major Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan.
Police picked up Shipra, a Stamford University student, from a local resort after the firing incident.
However, police arrested Sifat – who was travelling with the retired major, from the spot.
Both of them were accused in two different lawsuits – attempted murder and narcotics cases.
On August 1, police produced them before the Cox's Bazar court and the court sent them to jail.
Major (retd) Sinha had been in Cox's Bazar with the students for making a documentary film. Earlier on Friday night, Sinha was killed in police firing in Cox's Bazar Marine Drive.
Shipra, the student of the varsity's film and media studies department and a crew member of slain Major Sinha, was wrongfully arrested, according to her family members.
