Two bloggers get bail

Metropolitan Sessions Judge Md Zahurul Haque today granted their bail after hearing the argument of defense lawyer and fixed June 2 for hearing on the acceptance of charge sheet submitted against them. According to court sources, Barrister Jotormay Barua moved a bail petition for Russel Parvez and Subrata Adhikary Shuvo challenging legality of filing the case against them by police.
