24 April 2021

Staff Reporter :
A Dhaka court on Friday placed two leaders of Hefazat-e-Islam on different periods of remand in two separate cases filed with Paltan Police Station over the 2013 mayhem and recent violence in Dhaka.
The leaders are, Khaled Saifullah Ayubi, joint secretary general of Hefazat-e-Islam and Maulana Ihteshamul Haque Sakhi, joint office secretary of Hefazat.
Khaled Saifullah was placed on a five-day remand in the case filed with Paltan Police Station over the violence on March 26 protesting the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi while Sakhi was placed on a four-day remand in the case filed with the same police station over the 2013 mayhem in Dhaka.
Metropolitan Magistrate Nivana Khair Jesi passed the remand orders after two investigation officers submitted 10 days' remand prayer for each of the two Hefazat leaders.
Md Kamrul Hasan Talukder, an inspector of Detective Branch of Police and also the investigation officer of the case, produced Sakhi before the court with a 10-day remand prayer.
Md Enamul Haque, a sub-inspector of Paltan Police Station and also the investigation officer of the case concerned, produced Khaled Saifullah before the same court with a 10-day remand prayer.
Meanwhile, defence for both the accused, submitted petitions seeking bail along with cancellation of the remand prayers.
On hearing all sides, the magistrate rejected the defence pleas and put the accused on remand for interrogation.
