Hefazat leader Mamunul placed on seven-day remand

A court in Dhaka has placed Hefazat-e-Islam Joint Secretary General Mamunul Haque on a seven-day remand in a case filed with Mohammadpur police station last year.

Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Debdas Chandra Adhikari passed the order.

A joint team of Tejgaon Division police and DMP’s Detective Branch arrested Mamunul from Jamia Rahmania Arabia Madrasa in Mohammadpur on Sunday afternoon.

On the other hand, Mamunul Haque’s lawyer appealed for bail, seeking cancellation of his remand. The court passed the order after hearing both the parties.
