A court here today granted bail to Pabna district Juba Mahila League vice-president Mim Khatun alias Afsana Mim and her husband Md Obaidullah in a case filed for allegedly embezzling money through forgery.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shanta Akter granted the two accused bail on condition of reaching settlement with the complainant.

Earlier police produced the couple before the court and pleaded to keep them behind the bars till the end of probe in the case. The defence however, pleaded for their bail, saying, they have reached a settlement with the complainant already.

The complainant later informed the court that he has reached a settlement with the accused and has no objection to their bail. The court after that allowed Mim and her husband bail on Taka three thousand bond.

According to the case documents, Mim introduced her husband to plaintiff and Juba League leader Moniruzzaman as her brother-in-law. Mim and Obaidullah took more than Taka 13 lakh from the complainant as investment for their business. When Moniruzzaman demanded his money back, Mim and Obaidullah started threatening him.

Moniruzzaman later filed the case with capital's Gulshan Police Station.
