Aslam put on 5-day fresh remand
A court here on Wednesday placed BNP joint secretary general Aslam Chowdhury on a five-day fresh remand in a sedition case filed with Gulshan Police Station.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Mahmudul Hasan passed the order when DB inspector Fazlur Rahman produced him before the court on completion of his seven-day remand, seeking a 7-day fresh remand.
The court also rejected a bail petition filed by Aslam’s counsel Sanaullah Mia.
On May 31, a court placed Aslam Chowdhury on a seven-day remand in the case.
On May 26, DB inspector Golam Rabbani filed a sedition case against Aslam Chowdhury.
Plainclothes police arrested Aslam from the city on May 15 for his alleged involvement in an anti-state plot.
Several local newspapers published reports attaching more than one photographs of the BNP leader’s meeting with Israeli influential leader Mendi N Safadi.
But, Aslam denied any conspiracy against the government although he admitted to meeting Safadi in a tea party in India.
