15 Jamaat men on seven-day remand

Fifteen leader and activists of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami were taken on a seven-day remand after their arrest from the city's Uttarkhan yesterday.
The police had already sought permission from the home ministry to file a sedition case against them, said Nazmul Islam, officer-in-charge of Uttarkhan Police Station.
Acting on a tip-off, a team of Uttarkhan police raided the residence of one Tofazzel Hossain at Borobag of Uttarkhan where the activists were holding a secret meeting at around 1:00am to foil the war crimes trial, the OC said.
The police also seized huge copies of 18 different books written against Awami League and war crimes trial.
The Jamaat men were shown arrested under section 54 and were produced before a Dhaka court that placed them on a seven-day remand.
Jamaat leader of Tongi Golam Maula, his son Monir Hossain and Tofazzel are among the arrestees.
