Eight of the nine accused in a case filed for the attack on Kaler Kantho newspaper journalist Mostofa Monju—were sent to prison after a court rejected their bail petition. 

Jamalpur Senior Judicial Magistrate Md Solaiman Kabir passed the order on Wednesday.

According to the prosecution lawyer, the prime accused, Md Fazlul Haque, Jamalpur Municipality Councillor, along with the other accused had secured bail on May 31. Since then, they had been threatening the district journalists for protesting the attack on Monju. 

On June 9, the plaintiff lawyer Md Shamsul Haque, appealed to the court to revoke the bail granted to the accused. 

The Senior Judicial Magistrate received the petition and re-issued an arrest warrant against the accused.  

On Wednesday, defence lawyer Aman Ullah Akash, filed a bail petition before the court. However, the court rejected the petition and sent the accused to prison.

On May 28, Kaler Kantho journalist Mostofa Monju came under attack by a group of people—led by the Ward Councillor of Jamalpur 2 constituency Hasanuzzaman Khan Runu. Following the attack, journalists of Jamalpur protested, demanding exemplary punishment for the accused.
