AB Siddique Dipu was arrested in Tangail early Tuesday

A Dhaka court on Tuesday placed AB Siddique Dipu, another associate of Dhaka 7 MP Haji Md Selim's son Erfan Selim, on a three-day remand in the case filed by a navy official.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Satyabrata Sikder passed the order after Dhanmondi police station OC (investigation) Md Ashfaq Razib Hasan, also investigation officer of the case, produced Dipu before the court seeking a seven-day remand.

A bail petition and remand rejection prayer filed by defence counsel Saiful Islam was rejected by the court.

A team from the Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) arrested Dipu in Tangail early Tuesday, confirmed DB Additional Commissioner AKM Hafeez Akhter.

"He has been brought to Dhaka now," the police official added.

Lieutenant Wasif Ahmad of Bangladesh Navy filed the case against Erfan, also the councillor of Ward 30 under Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC), for allegedly assaulting him in the capital.

The navy official filed the case with Dhanmondi police station on Sunday night against four named accused -- Erfan, his bodyguard Md Zahid, Dipu, and driver Md Mizanur Rahman, and several unnamed accused.

On Sunday night, a video of Lieutenant Wasif screaming for justice before the public after being assaulted by Erfan and a few accomplices went viral on social media.

The attack took place in the Kalabagan bus stop area around 7:45pm on Sunday, when the military officer protested after his motorcycle was hit by Erfan's car, which had a parliament sticker.  

Later, members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) conducted a drive at the residence of Awami League leader Haji Selim in Old Dhaka's Lalbagh area and detained his son Erfan and Zahid on Monday afternoon.

On the same day, a Dhaka court placed Erfan's driver Mizanur Rahman, who was arrested soon after the incident, on one-day remand in connection with the case.

When asked for comments about the attack on the navy official, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said nobody would be spared if they were involved in criminal activities, regardless of their identity.
