A Dhaka court on Thursday sent to jail Salauddin Shoeb Chowdhury, editor of local English weekly Blitz, in connection with an embezzlement case filed by his business partner Sajjad Hossain.
Dakkhinkhan police had arrested Shoeb at his house in Uttara on Wednesday night for allegedly embezzling Tk 79 lakh, said sources.
In September, Blitz created a sensational commotion across the sub-continent by publishing a relationship scandal between Hina Rabbani Khar, foreign minister of Pakistan, and Bilawal Bhutto, son of Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari.
Shoeb's arrest was made a day before the Dhaka visit of Hina Rabbani.
