Police produced him before the court around midnight and pleaded for 20-day remand


A Dhaka court has placed ward councilor Tarekuzzaman Razib on a remand of 14 days in total, in two cases lodged under narcotics and arms acts.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Begum Yasmin Ara placed the councillor on seven-day remand in an arms case and seven-day remand in a narcotics case at around 12.15am on Monday.

Earlier the police produced the councillor of ward-33 of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) before the court around midnight, and pleaded to place him on a total of  20-day remand in the two cases.

Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Razib from a flat in Bashundhara Residential Area on October 19. 

The elite crime busting agency seized seven bottles of foreign liquor, a foreign-made pistol, a magazine with three bullets, Tk33,000 in cash, and a passport from the flat.

RAB later searched his Mohammadpur house and office, but could not find anything except a cheque of Tk5 crore. They suspect that Razib has already removed all things which can relate him to his notorious activities.

RAB handed Razib over to Bhatara Police Station on Sunday, filing two cases against him.
