A Dhaka court has rejected the bail pleas of four private university students in two cases filed over vandalism and attacks on police during the student movement demanding road safety.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Court Judge Pranab Kumar passed the order on Sunday in two separate cases filed under Badda and Bhatara Police Stations.

The students were Torikul Islam, Redwan Ahmed, Mashad Murtaza Ahad, and Azizul Karim Antar.

Defence lawyers Kabir Hossain and Rokeya Karim pled for bail on their behalf, while CMM Court General Recording Officer Sub-inspector Abu Hanif opposed the bail.

Earlier on August 9, bail was denied to 22 private university students and they were sent to jail after completing their 2-day remand in the cases.

Students of the private universities clashed with police last week while demonstrating against the attack on students during their movement for safe roads in the city.
