Bail rejected, Pori Moni and Mou sent to jail
Film actress Pori Moni, model Mariam Akhter Mou and three others were sent to jail today on completion of remands in three separate cases filed with Banani and Mohammadpur police stations under the Narcotics Control Act.
The three others are: Raz Multimedia owner Nazrul Islam Raz, his associate Md Sabuj Ali and Pori Moni's associate Ashraful Islam Dipu.
Criminal Investigation Department did not submit any remand prayer for the five today.
Metropolitan Magistrate Dhiman Chandra Mondol rejected Pori Moni and Dipu's bail petitions and sent them to jail after CID Inspector Kazi Golam Mostafa, also the investigation officer of the case, produced the duo before it on completion of their six-day remand in two phases.
In the forwarding report, the IO said Pori Moni and Dipu gave important information about the recovery of narcotics from their residences which was being verified. If they get bail they will tamper with the investigation and they can leave the country. So, the IO appealed to the court to confine them in jail until the investigation is completed.
Defence, however, submitted a petition seeking bail on grounds that Pori Moni was framed falsely and she has committed to a number of films which she cannot complete if she is in jail.
The same court sent Raz and Sabuj to jail after Investigation Officer CID Inspector Md Giaus Uddin produced them before it on completion of their six-day remand in two phases.
The IO also prayed for keeping them in jail until the investigation is completed.
Metropolitan Magistrate Md Abu Sayeed rejected bail petition and sent Mou to jail after CID Inspector Probir Kumar Ghosh, also the investigation officer of the case, produced her before it on completion of her nine-day remand in three phases.
On August 5, Pori Moni, Raz and their associates were shown arrested in two separate cases filed by the Rapid Action Battalion under the Narcotics Control Act. The previous day, members of the elite force detained them after raiding their houses.
Detectives on August 1 arrested Mou from her Mohammadpur residence. They said they seized 750 yaba pills and 12 bottles of foreign liquor from there.
