15 Shibir men remanded
A Dhaka court yesterday placed 15 members of Islami Chhatra Shibir on a two-day remand each in two cases filed for assaulting policemen and damaging public properties.
On Saturday, police picked the 15 and two other activists of the Jamaat-backed student organisation following a clash that injured at least 20 people including several policemen.
The Shibir men were holding a rally in Kakrail and Shanti Nagar areas without any permission and blocking the road, said police sources.
When police tried to stop them, they ransacked roadside business establishments, vandalised vehicles and clashed with the law enforcers.
Metropolitan Magistrate Keshab Roy Chowdhury passed the order after Ramna police produced them before the court with ten days' remand prayers.
Of the arrested 17, Ashiqur Rahman and Mominul Islam were directly sent to jail by the court.
