Tweny-six Bangladeshis were killed and 11 others injured in a gun attack by human traffickers in Libya on May 28

A Dhaka court on Saturday granted police three days to interrogate a member of a gang that was responsible for trafficking 26 Bangladeshis who were killed in Libya last month.

Metropolitan Magistrate Sadbir Yasir Ahsan Chowdhury passed the order during a virtual hearing after detectives presented Md Kamal Hossain, 40, before the court, according to media reports.

The court rejected his bail petition and sent him into police remand for three days.

Kamal was arrested in Dhaka on Friday in connection with a case filed against him and 35 others with Khilgaon police station on June 9 for trafficking Bangladeshis to Libya.

On May 28, 38 Bangladeshis and several people of African origin were held hostage by human traffickers in Libya. Even though they were paid up to $10,000 by each of the hostages, the traffickers had demanded a large amount of money again.

At a certain stage, the traffickers fired shots, killing 26 Bangladeshis and two others in the process.

Counting Kamal Hossain, media reports said, nearly 40 people, including the human trafficking gang's leader Kamal Uddin alias Haji Kamal, have been arrested till now in over 20 cases filed across the country over human trafficking to Libya and the murders.
