Earlier on September 19, separate Dhaka courts placed him on a total of seven-day remand in two cases

Former organizing secretary of Awami Jubo League’s (Dhaka South) unit Khalid Mahmud Bhuiyan has again been placed in a total of 10-day remand in two separate cases over possession of illegal arms and narcotics.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Didarul Alam passed the order on Friday.

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) pleaded the court for a total of 20-day remand in the two separate cases – 10 days in each case – to which the court responded by passing the order for a 10-day remand in total. 

Earlier on September 19, separate courts in Dhaka placed former Jubo League Dhaka South unit organizing secretary Khalid on a total of seven-day remand in two cases lodged over the accusations. 

RAB arrested Khalid from his Gulshan residence on September 18, for allegedly running an illegal casino in the Dhaka’s Fakirapool area. The law enforcement agency also seized illegal weapons, yaba pills, and a huge amount of cash from his residence.

He was then handed over to Gulshan police station on September 19.

RAB filed three cases against him under Arms, Narcotics Control Act, and Money Laundering Prevention Act.

Jubo League recently expelled Khalid for his alleged involvement in anti-social activities.
