A Dhaka court has placed Daily Star Executive Editor Syed Ashfaqul Haque and his wife, Tania Khandaker, on a four-day remand each in a case filed over the domestic help death due to negligence.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Saifur Rahman passed the order on Tuesday afternoon.

Mohammadpur police station Sub Inspector (SI) Nazmul Hasan, also the case's investigation officer, produced the accused before the court and sought a 10-day remand.

During the hearing, defence lawyers Chaitanya Chandra Halder and Ashraful Alam filed bail petitions seeking cancellation of the remand. The state opposed it. After hearing both sides, the court placed them on a four-day remand.

Helal Uddin, sub-inspector of Mohammadpur police station’s general registration branch confirmed the information.

On Tuesday, a teenage domestic help named Preeti Oran died after falling from the eighth floor of a residential building in the capital's Mohammadpur.

The 15-year-old girl used to work at the residence of Ashfaqul. Later, police recovered the body and sent it to Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital morgue for autopsy.

Later, the deceased’s father, Lukesh Oran, filed the case under Section 304 (A) of the Penal Code.
