The First Additional Metropolitan Sessions Judge’s Court of Dhaka on Tuesday rejected a bail petition of Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Dr Md Shafiqur Rahman in a case lodged with the capital's Jatrabari Police Station for his alleged involvement in militancy.

Judge Foysal Atik Bin Qader of the court passed the order after hearing on the bail petition. The Jamaat Chief was placed on remand twice in the case.

A team of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit arrested the Jamaat Chief from the capital's Basundhara area on December 12, 2022. 

Earlier police arrested his son Dr Rafat Chowdhury, alleged Chief Coordinator of banned militant outfit Ansar Al Islam's Sylhet region, in the case. - Special Correspondent
