A court here on Monday placed BNP joint secretary general Aslam Chowdhury on a seven-day remand for his alleged involvement in an anti-state plot.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Sharafuzzaman Ansari passed the order when DB inspector Golam Rabbani produced him before the court, seeking a 10-day remand for him. Dhaka, UNB News Agency Reported.
The court also rejected a remand petition submitted by Aslam’s counsel Sanaullah Miah.
Plainclothes police arrested Aslam from the capital city on Sunday. Later, DB lodged two general diaries in this connection.
He was held hours after Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) Commissioner Iqbal Bahar said there was an order not to allow Aslam leave the country and arrest him whenever he will be found.
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.
