Two courts of Dhaka on Wednesday denied bail of BNP Vice-Chairman and convener of Dhaka city unit Sadeque Hossain Khoka and remand against him in two cases filed with Sutrapur and Paltan Police Stations for killing people by torching passenger bus and sedition.The courts directed law enforcers to interrogate Khoka at the jail gate, within 10 days, if necessary. The courts also ordered the authorities to send back Khoka to the jail. The Investigation Officers of the cases produced Khoka to the court with a 10-day remand prayer for each of the cases to quiz him.
Metropolitan Magistrates Md Tareque Moinul Islam Bhuiyan and Maruf Hassan passed the orders in two cases.

On December 4, Sadeque Hossain Khoka was arrested from City’s Uttara area. On Dec 5, a Dhaka court placed Khoka on a two-day remand in a case filed with Shahbagh Police Station.
