Earlier, on August 7, a Dhaka court placed the 22 students on a two-day remand in the two cases filed with Badda and Vatara police stations respectively.

A Dhaka court on Thursday denied bail to 22 students from various private universities, accused in two cases filed for vandalism and attacks on police during the movement for safe roads. This, upon completion of their two-day remand in custody.   

Metropolitan Magistrate Sattyabrata Shikder issued the order after investigation officers (IOs) produced them before the court on Thursday morning.

The IOs, Vatara police station Sub-Inspector Hasan Masud, and Badda police station Sub-Inspector Zulhas Miah, wrote to the court that “the accused provided pertinent information regarding the cases which should not be disclosed for the sake of a proper investigation of the cases. So the state needs them to be in jail till the investigation is completed.”
