The case investigation officer has submitted his written explanation

Two lower court magistrates who placed actress Pori Moni on police remand for the second and the third time in a narcotics case have been given another week to explain their orders.

The High Court bench of Justices Mustafa Zaman Islam and KM Zahid Sarwar granted the time on Sunday, responding to an appeal submitted by lawyer Abdul Alim Mia Jewel on behalf of the two magistrates.

Case investigation officer Kazi Golam Mostafa has already submitted his written explanation in this regard.

On September 29, the High Court had asked for further explanation from Metropolitan Magistrates Debabrata Biswas and Atiqul Islam by October 24 on why they remanded Pori Moni to police multiple times in the case.

Besides, the court asked the case investigation officer to submit his explanation within the set date.

On August 19, for the third time, Metropolitan Magistrate Atiqul Islam granted another one-day in remand for the actress.

Following the High Court's intervention, another Dhaka court finally granted her bail on September 1 and she walked out of jail the next day.

On August 29, one Ain o Salish Kendra lawyer filed a petition before the High Court seeking an order on the legality of taking Pori Moni in multiple remands in the case defying an earlier order of the Supreme Court.

On September 2, the High Court asked the two lower court judges to explain why they had accepted the police request to remand the actress multiple times in the narcotics case.

On September 15, the High Court expressed dissatisfaction over the explanations submitted by the two judges and set September 29 for the next hearing.
