Police yesterday brought Hefajat-e-Islam leader Mamunul Haque to Narayanganj from Dhaka to interrogate him centring three cases which contain rape and violence charges.
Mamunul, former joint general secretary of Hefajat, was firstly taken to the office of district detective branch (DB) of police around 9am. Then, police started interrogating over the rape case.
"We have brought Mamunul on a total remand of nine days for three cases. Firstly, we started interrogation centring the rape case, in which he has been remanded for three days. He will be interrogated for six days more for two other violence cases," said Mostafizur Rahman, additional superintendent of police in Narayanganj.
Earlier on April 3, some ruling Awami League (AL) men kept Mamunul confined in a room, where he went with a woman. When the chaos was going on, Mamunul claimed that the woman is his second wife, though AL men were not satisfied with the claim and alleged that Mamunul had an extra-marital affair with the woman.
As the news of Mamunul's confinement spread, several hundreds of Hefajat men unleashed violence there and took Mamunul away.
Two days later on April 5, two separate violence case were filed against Mamunul and many other Hefajat men for vandalism and arson.
On April 30, a woman -- who, according to Mamunul, was his second wife -- filed a rape case against Mamunul with Sonargaon Police Station.
In the case statement, the woman alleged that Mamunul raped her multiple times over the last two years, promising to marry her.
Police arrested Mamunul on April 18 from Jamia Rahmania Arabia Madrasa in Dhaka's Mohammadpur.
