Jubo Dal leader Tuku denied bail

A Tangail court yesterday rejected the bail prayer of Jatiyatabadi Jubo Dal General Secretary Sultan Salahuddin Tuku in a case filed for subversive activities in Gopalpur upazila of the district.

Senior Judicial Magistrate Farzana Hasnat passed the order in a crowded courtroom, said Court Inspector Anoarul Islam.

Tuku's lawyer Golam Mostafa sought his bail in the case, saying that Tuku was not involved with the incident.

Tuku, also former president of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD), was produced before the court around 1:00pm amid tight security.

Earlier, he was taken to the District Jail in the morning from Keraniganj Central Jail in Dhaka.

Several hundred leaders and activists of BNP and its associate bodies led by BNP's district President Shamsul Alam Tofa gathered in the court area from the morning.
