The court also issued a rule asking why Irfan, also former ward councillor of Dhaka South City Corporation, should not get bail. The state has been asked to respond to the rule within two weeks.
Advocate Sayed Ahmed Raza stood for the accused while Deputy Attorney general Dr Md Bashir Ullah represented the state.

Later, some people including Irfan came out of the car and physically assaulted Wasif and verbally abused his wife.
