Two metropolitan magistrates were summoned to explain why they allowed a second and third round of remand

The High Court has fixed January 5 next year to give its decision on the legality of remanding Dhallywood actor Shamsunnahar Smriti, better known as Pori Moni, for a second and third times in a narcotics case.

The bench of Justice Mostafa Zaman Islam and Justice ASM Abdul Mobin scheduled the delivery of the verdict on Thursday.

Lawyer Abdul Alim Mia Jewel represented the two magistrates, who accepted the remand pleas. Attorney General AM Amin Uddin and Assistant Attorney General Mohammad Mizanur Rahman stood for the state. Lawyers ZI Khan Panna and Mojibur Rahman were in favour of Pori Moni, reports Bangla Tribune.

Pori Moni was arrested on August 4 following a raid by RAB on her Banani residence. A case was filed against her under the Narcotics Control Act the following day.

On August 5, Metropolitan Magistrate Mamunur Rashid remanded Pori Moni for four days for the first time.

On August 10, Metropolitan Magistrate Biswas granted police two days to grill her for the second time.

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

Following the High Court's intervention, another Dhaka court finally granted bail to the actress on September 1 and she walked out of jail the following 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 magistrates.

On October 31, the two magistrates sought an unconditional apology to the High Court for placing Pori Moni on multiple remands.

The court then set November 25 to pass an order regarding the matter and acquitted case investigation officer Kazi Golam Mostafa from personal appearance in the court.
