422 juveniles granted bail virtually in 18 working days

Virtual courts and tribunals have granted bail to 422 juveniles in the last 18 working days until Thursday.

Besides, a total of 31,208 people have secured bail in that time period as the courts settled a total of 58,605 petitions, Md Saifur Rahman, special officer at the High Court Division told The Financial Express.

Moreover, as many as 1,917 accused secured bail on Thursday.

The courts and tribunals have been hearing cases virtually since April 12 as the country witnessed a sudden spike in coronavirus-related infections and fatalities.

Previously, in March last year, the Supreme Court suspended the operation of all courts as part of the government efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus in the country.

Later in May, President Abdul Hamid promulgated an ordinance allowing all courts to virtually conduct their trial proceedings.
