Dhaka-The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Court of Dhaka on Wednesday placed suspected Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) member Shamim alias Somir alias Imra on a six-day remand in the case lodged for killing publisher Faisal Arefin Dipan last year.Magistrate M Ahsan Habib of the court passed the order after Inspector M Fazlur Rahman of the Detective Branch (DB) produced Shamim, allegedly, the prime accused in Dipan murder case to his court.
DB men arrested Shamim from Cherag Ali area of Tongi in Gazipur on early Wednesday and sought a 10-day remand to question him in connection with murder.
On May 20, the DMP authorities announced a bounty for information leading to the arrest of alleged six kingpins of banned militant outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team, including Shamim, who were reportedly involved in the murders of bloggers, writers and publishers in the recent time.

Dipan was the publisher of a book titled ‘Biswaser Virus’ (Virus of Faith) written by blogger and founder of Mukto-Mona blog Avijit Roy, who was also hacked to death on February 26, last year, near TSC on the Dhaka University Campus during Ekushey Book Fair. -Special Correspondent
