Dhaka, Aug 27 (UNB) - A court here on Monday granted bail of Eden College student, Lutfur Nahar Luma Sarkar, in a case filed under Information and Communication and Technology (ICT) Act.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Court Judge Subrata Ghose passed the order.

On Sunday, Luma’s lawyer Jotirmoy Barua filed a bail petition while the court set Monday to hear it due to lack of documents.

With Luma’s bail, the last detained student leader of quota reform movement has been freed on bail.

Earlier on August 16, Luma, a joint convener of Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council, platform that leads the ongoing quota reform movement, was placed for 3-day remand.
