A Sirajganj court has sent to jail seven accused in murder case of journalist Abdul Hakim Shimul after they surrendered before the court on Tuesday.

Senior Judicial Magistrate Hasibul Haque rejected their bail pleas and scheduled the next hearing for September 26.

He succumbed to his injuries the next day. Shimul's wife Nurunnahar Begum filed a case accusing 18 people the following day. Police have pressed charges against Mayor Miru and 36 others. So far, 21 suspects, including Miru and his brother Mintu, have been arrested.
