A Dhaka court today placed Hefajat-e-Islam's Joint Secretary General Mamunul Haque on a seven-day remand in a case filed last year with Mohammadpur Police Station.
Metropolitan Magistrate Debdash Chandra Adhikary passed the order after Sub-inspector of the police station Md Sajedul Haque submitted the remand prayer before the court.
Mamunul was produced before the court amid tight security in and around the court premises.
Earlier, Mamunul was shown arrested in the case filed on March 7 last year over vandalism by activists of the Qawmi madrasa-based organisation in the capital's Mohammadpur area.
One GM Alamgir Shahin filed the case, accusing Mamunul and seven other named and some 70-80 unnamed persons, accusing them of attempt to murder, vandalism, looting a Samsung mobile phone set, Tk 7,000, US$ 2,000 and a Brac Bank debit card during an attack at a local mosque, and also threatening the mosque authorities.
The plaintiff also alleged that the accused carried out the attack when the mosque authorities were holding a sermon around 8:40pm on March 6, 2020, which also hurt religious sentiments.
From the court, Mamunul was taken to DB office on Mintoo Road.
Police said he will be interrogated at the DB office on security ground.
A joint team of Tejgaon Division police and DMP's Detective Branch arrested Mamunul from Jamia Rahmania Arabia Madrasa in Mohammadpur yesterday afternoon.
