The HC bench of Justice AKM Asaduzzaman and Justice Ataur Rahman Khan rejected the petition as investigation into the case has not finished yet, Rehman’s lawyer Asaduzzaman told the Daily Star.

He said his client will file an appeal with the Supreme Court seeking bail in the case.

Rehman was arrested on April 16 in a case filed for alleged attempts to abduct and murder prime minister’s son Sajeeb Wazed Joy.

On that day, plainclothes detectives entered Rehman’s Eskaton residence around 6:00am identifying themselves as Boishakhi television reporters “to interview him”.

However, before leaving with him around 8:15am, they told family members that they were detectives.
