Tajmeri Islam

Tajmeri SA Islam, retired professor of Dhaka University and adviser to BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia, has been granted bail in a sabotage case filed in 2018, reports UNB.

Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Mahbub Ahmed passed the order on Tuesday following a bail petition, said professor Tajmeri's lawyer Masud Ahmed Talukdar.

Uttara police arrested professor Tajmeri on Thursday in a case filed over obstructing police from performing duties during an anti-government demonstration of the party in the capital's Uttara on 23 September 2018.

Later, she was sent to Kashimpur central jail as a court rejected her bail petition. She is being harassed for political revenge, alleged her family.

According to court and lawyer sources, professor Tajmeri is one of the 75 accused indicted in the sabotage case. She was granted bail by the High Court in that case.

Professor Tajmeri was performed several duties at Dhaka University, including the former dean of science faculty, chairperson of Chemistry department and the provost of Ruqayyah Hall.
