A Chittagong court has granted police one day to interrogate seven people arrested in a case filed over the attack on the Durga Puja venue at JM Sen Hall in Chittagong.

Metropolitan Magistrate Mehnaz Rahman on Tuesday approved their remand after they were produced before the court, police said.

The seven are Imran Majed Rahul, 28, Md Hanif, 48, Abdur Rahim, 26, Amirul Islam, 33, Atiqul Islam, 22, Md Shahjahan, 35, and Abdul Malek Prakash Manik, 30.

Kotwali police station Sub-Inspector Bablu Paul said they had applied for seven days but the court granted only one.

On Monday, 16 people accused in this case were also remanded in police custody for one day.

On October 18, another court had ordered the remand of 10 arrestees.

On October 15, after Jumma prayers at Anderkilla Shahi Jame Masjid, hundreds of Muslims brought out a procession protesting the desecration of the Holy Quran during Durga Puja in Comilla.

The protesters then attempted to attack the Puja venue at the port city's JM Sen Hall, tore down banners and posters, and clashed with police.

The case was filed with Kotwali police later under the Special Powers Act against nearly 600 people, 83 of whom were named and at least 500 unnamed.
