Xulhaz murder accused Sihab on fresh remand


The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Court of Dhaka on Thursday placed Shariful Islam alias Sihab, arrested in connection with killing USAID staff Xulhaz Mannan and his friend Mahub Tanoy, on a five-day remand afresh.Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Md Alamgir Kabir Raja passed the order after DB inspector Bahauddin Faruki produced Sihab to the court seeking a 10-day remand afresh. He was brought to the court on expiry of his first remand for three days.
On May 15, Sihab was first placed on remand in connection with the killing. A special team of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of DMP arrested Shariful Islam, who is a suspected activist of Ansarullah Bangla Team. Police says, perhaps he was involved in the double murder.
