A Dhaka court yesterday sent war crimes suspect Delawar Hossain Sayedee's son and four others on a three-day remand each in connection with a case filed for January 28 cocktail blasts at the capital's Motijheel.
Detectives on Monday arrested Shamim Hossain Sayedee and his four associates in separate drives in the capital on charges of planning subversive activities.
The four associates are: Habibur Rahman, a teacher of Shanto-Mariam University, Mosharraf Hossain, a teacher of Bangladesh International Cadet Madrasa, Abdur Rashid, owner of Colombia Travels International, and Mohammad Ripon.
Metropolitan Magistrate Shahriar Mahmud Adnan passed the remand order when Kabir Hosain Hawlader, investigating officer of the case, produced them before the court with a seven-day remand prayer for each.
Defence lawyers submitted their petitions to the court for cancelling the remand prayer.
On January 28, a group of Jamaat-Shibir leaders and activists brought out a procession in Motijheel area, demanding release of their top leaders who are facing trial for crimes against humanity.
As police resisted them, the activists attacked the law enforcers, preventing them from discharging their duties and blasted cocktails that left several policemen injured.
