A Dhaka court on Wednesday placed Hefazat-e-Islam leader Mufti Monir Hossain Qasemi on a three-day remand afresh in a case lodged over Hefazat’s mayhem in Baitul Mukarram area in the capital eight years ago.
As he was produced before the court on Wednesday, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Begum Mahmuda Akter placed him on a three-day remand after the hearing.
Earlier, he was placed on a four-day remand by the same court on May 22, a day after his arrest.
On May 5, 2013, leaders and activists of Hefazat-e-Islam laid siege to Dhaka. On that day, Hefazat workers vandalized and set fire to vehicles and government and private establishments in Motijheel, Paltan and Arambagh areas.
A case was filed with Paltan police station in this regard.
