Police to probe movie moghul

Aziz Mohammad Bhai, an industrialist and film producer has been placed on a two-day remand for interrogation, reports UNB.


As defence counsel prayed for bail when he was produced before the CMM's court yesterday afternoon, the Court Inspector stood in opposition bringing the serious charges against the accused.


"There are allegations that Aziz Mohammad Bhai is involved in film actor Sohel Chowdhury murder, using beautiful women in smuggling and supply of secret government information and documents abroad," Inspector Nakib Zaman said.


Police prayed for a 10-day remand, but the magistrate granted two days. Aziz Bhai was arrested Wednesday evening from Gulshan area by Special Branch of police. He was taken to the court at about 3.45 pm.


At one stage, he shook hands with his lawyer Barrister K S Nabi who opposed the remand prayer saying that all the allegations brought against his client are 'fictitious.'

K S Nabi, the former Attorney-General, submitted that there were no specific charges against Aziz Bhai and no provision of police remand in the CrPC. "Police sought remand only to harass him," he said.


Meanwhile, a 120-day detention order against Bhai will come into effect after the remand is over.
