Tahmid denied bail again


Dhaka: A court here on Sunday once again denied bail to Toronto University student Tahmid Hasib Khan in connection with the Gulshan terror attack.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mahmudul Hasan passed the order after Tahmid’s counsel M Masud Arif Bhuiyan Hanif filed a petition seeking his bail, said Court Police sub-inspector Ranap Kumar Bhakta. UNB News Agency Reported.
Earlier on August 20, another court sent Tahmid to jail rejecting his bail pleas when he was produced before it on completion of his remand period in connection with the Gulshan terror attack.
A team of the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) arrested former North South University teacher Abul Hasnat Rezaul Karim and Tahmid on August 3 from the city’s Gulshan and Bashundhara areas respectively for their suspected link to the attack.
They were shown arrested under Section 54 of the CrPC. Later, Hasnat Karim was shown arrested in the case.
Tahmid, a Bangladeshi-origin Canadian, and Hasnat Karim were rescued along with 11 others during the commando operation at the Holey Artisan Bakery at the city’s diplomatic zone Gulshan on July 2 following a 12-hour hostage standoff.
Their family members claimed that they had remained traceless since then. However, law enforcement agencies said that they set them free after interrogation over the café’ attack.
Apart from two police officers, 20 hostages, including 17 foreign nationals, were killed by militants, while five militants and one suspected associate of the attackers were killed during a commando operation in the café on July 2.
