BNP leader Aslam on 7-day remand in sedition case

A Dhaka court today placed BNP leader Aslam Chowdhury on a seven-day remand in a sedition case filed allegedly for hatching a conspiracy with Israel's Likud Party and its intelligence agency Mossad to oust the government.

The court of Metropolitan Magistrate Md Golam Nabi passed the order after Fazlul Haque, inspector of Detective Branch of police, produced Aslam before it around 10:30am with a 10-day remand prayer in the case.

Known to be a trusted lieutenant of BNP Senior Vice-Chairman Tarique Rahman, Chittagong-based businessman Aslam came under severe criticism from in and outside the party after several photographs went viral in social media showing him with Israeli politician Mendi N Safadi, also chief of Safadi Center for International Diplomacy and Public Relations.
