 Prothom Alo journalist Shams denied bail, sent to jail

Court Correspondent :
A Dhaka court has sent Prothom  Alo's Savar Correspondent Shamsuzzaman Shams to jail in a Digital Security Act (DSA) case.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Md Tofazzal Hossain passed the order after rejecting Shamsuzzaman's bail petition on Thursday afternoon, confirmed Shamsuzzaman's lawyer Prashanta Karmaker.
Shamsuzzaman has been shown arrested in the DSA case filed with Ramna police station and was taken to court around 9:30am on Thursday.
Earlier on Wednesday, a Digital Security Act (DSA) case was filed against national daily Prothom Alo's Editor Matiur Rahman, where the national daily's Savar correspondent Shamsuzzaman Shams was also accused alongside his associate cameraperson and other unnamed persons.
Lawyer Abdul Malek alias Mashiur Malek, filed the case with Ramna police station around 11:10pm on Wednesday.
Previously in the early hours of Wednesday, a DSA case was filed against Shamsuzzaman Shams with Tejgaon police station.   He was later picked up from his Savar home by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) around 4am.
Syed Golam Kibria, the general secretary of Ward-11 of the Dhaka North city unit Jubo League, filed the case with Tejgaon Police Station around 2:15am.
The case statement said Shams, for his report, paid a child Tk10 and fabricated his quote.
This proves that the report published on 26 March in Prothom Alo was influenced by vested interests to tarnish the image of the government and the country globally, the statement added.
Kibria, in his statement, said his sentiments were hurt by the report published on Independence Day.
