A Dhaka court on Monday again placed blogger Asif Mohiuddin on a one-day remand in a case filed for hurting religious sentiment of the people using social media.
Metropolitan Magistrate Tarek Mainul Islam Bhuiyan passed the order after Mainul Islam, inspector of Detective Branch (DB) of police, produced Asif before him with a 7-day remand.
During the day’s proceedings, advocate Alauddin, counsel for Asif, filed a bail petition for his clients. But the court did not entertain his prayer.
Earlier on April 4, another Dhaka court placed Asif on a three-day remand in connection with the same case.
Detectives on April 3 arrested Mohiuddin, who had been attacked by Islamist fanatics in January, following his alleged postings on the Internet “defaming Islam and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)”.
