Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) yesterday presented Cumilla City Corporation Councillor Abdus Sattar before a Cumilla court in a case filed over the murder of Awami League activist Jillur Rahman Jilani.
"We prayed for a seven-day remand for him," said Bipul Debnath of PBI, the investigating officer of the case.
However, Salauddin Al Mahmud, the court inspector, said no bail prayer or hearing for remand was held due to some document-related issue. The hearing will be held at a later date, he said.
Additional chief judicial magistrate Masudur Rahman sent Sattar to jail.
On Tuesday, PBI Cumilla arrested Sattar from the capital's Shahbagh.
On November 11 last year, Jillur Rahman Jilani was beaten, hacked and shot before being killed by helmet-wearing miscreants in Cumilla city. A case was later filed accusing several people.
Zilani's family and villagers arranged a human chain at Cumilla city's Chawara Bazar area last week.
