Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi was released from jail on Tuesday (April 25) on bail after more than four and a half months of his arrest.
He walked out of Dhaka Central Jail in Keraniganj around 4pm.
Around a hundred party leaders and workers and some relatives received Rizvi at the jail gate.
Rizvi and more than 400 leaders and activists of BNP were arrested in a police raid on the party’s Nayapaltan central office on December 7 last year, three days before the party’s much-talked about rally in the capital.
