A Dhaka court has placed Director Khorshed Alam of Alif Hostel on a one-day remand, in a case filed against the accused, for throwing out certificates, books and furniture of some students who could not afford to pay rents amid the Covid-19 pandemic in the capital’s Dhanmondi area.

A virtual court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Md Masudur Rahman passed the order after Kalabagan police station Sub-Inspector Md Biplob Hossain, also the investigation officer of the case sought a 3-day remand for interrogating Khorshed in the case.

Opposing the remand petition, defence counsel Md Anowar Hossain, submitted a bail petition and also filed a remand rejection petition before the court for his client but the court rejected the bail plea and granted one day remand after a hearing.

Two separate cases have been lodged in Kalabagan police station in this regard.
