Nipun’s bail denied, police to interrogate at jail gate
A Dhaka court on Tuesday denied bail petition of Nipun Roy Chowdhury, Bangladesh Nationalist Party executive committee member, and allowed police for interrogating her at jail gate for a day.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Tofajjal Hossain gave the direction denying a 7-day remand prayer by Kazi Quamrul, sub-inspector of Paltan Police Station.
The court also rejected the bail petition filed by Supreme Court lawyer Nitai Roy Chowdhury, Nipun’s father, and Sanaullah Miah.
On November 15, police picked up Nipun in a case filed over the violent clash between police and BNP activists in front of the party’s Naya Paltan central office on November 14, the third day of BNP’s nomination sales for the 11th general election.
At least 50 people, including 23 policemen, were injured in the clash.
