The High Court today revoked its previous order that granted a one-year interim bail to sacked Awami League leader Ruhul Amin in the gang rape case of Noakhali’s Subarnachar upazila after the December-30 national election, which sparked protest across the country.

The HC bench of Justice Mamnoon Rahman and Justice SM Kuddus Zaman sat on weekly holiday and passed the order, said Supreme Court Special officer Mohammad Saifur Rahman.

The court also fixed March 25 for next hearing.

On March 18, the HC granted bail to Ruhul Amin after hearing a petition filed by him.

It was alleged that Ruhul Amin along with his accomplices gang-raped a woman on the night of the general election on December 30. Police later arrested him.

Ruhul Amin was the upazila unit publicity affairs secretary of Awami League and a former union council member. Later, the party expelled him.

According to the victim’s husband, a group of miscreants stormed their house in the early hours of December 31 and tied up all the family members except his wife.

They took the woman outside the house at gunpoint where they violated her in turns.

He said her wife had altercation with Awami League men when she cast her vote for BNP candidate in the Dec-30 election, hours before being gang raped.

After the rape, they also warned the victim of dire consequence if the matter was disclosed to anyone.
