A Dhaka court has granted police two days to interrogate two former leaders of Dhaka University’s (DU) Bangladesh Chhatra League unit in a case filed under the Arms Act.

Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Syed issued the order on Wednesday, after Shahbagh police station OC Arifur Rahman Sarder produced them before the court.

The two accused, who were arrested on Tuesday with a gun and drugs, are Hasibur Rahman Tushar and Abu Bakar Alif — students of the Institute of Education Research and philosophy department, respectively, of 2013-14 session.

OC Arifur, also the case investigation officer, had pleaded for seven-day remand for each, but the court granted only two days.

The court yesterday also rejected their petitions seeking bail and cancellation of police’s remand plea.

On Tuesday evening, a DU proctorial team raided Haji Muhammad Mohsin Hall, and caught the duo with a fully-loaded gun, several sharp weapons, three types of narcotics including yaba and phensedyl, two laptop and two CCTV cameras.

DU authorities later handed Tushar and Arif over to Shahbagh police station and filed the case there under the Arms Act against them.

After the raid, DU Proctor Prof AKM Golam Rabbani had said they raided the dormitory and held Tushar and Alif over allegation that they threatened Chhatra League’s Mohsin Hall unit Student Scholarship Affairs Secretary Riaz Farazi by “by holding a gun to his head” over group politics earlier in the day.

Tushar was the deputy sports secretary and Alif was the deputy finance secretary in the last committee of Chhatra League’s DU unit.

According to leaders of the last committee, both of them were expelled from the organization for their alleged involvement in illegal yaba trading.
