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.
