A Dhaka court on Wednesday placed assistant secretary generals of Hefazat-e-Islam’s recently dissolved committee, Ataullah Amin and Shakhawat Hossain Raji on a six-day remand in four separate cases lodged over the group’s 2013 mayhem in the capital.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shahinur Rahman passed the remand order against Shakhawat Hossain Raji as police produced him before the court and pleaded to place the accused on a seven-day remand in each of the two cases lodged with the Paltan and Motijheel police stations.

After hearing the police plea, the court remanded him for three days in each of the two cases.

Meanwhile, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Devbrata Biswas placed Ataullah Amin on a six-day remand in the two cases lodged with Ramna and Shahbagh police station over Hefazat-e-Islam’s 2013 anarchy in the capital.
