Mamunul put on 7-day remand in vandalism case

A Dhaka court on Monday placed Mamunul Haque, the controversial Joint Secretary General of Hefezat-e-Islam, on a 7-day remand in a vandalism case filed with Mohammadpur police station in 2020.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Devdas Chandra Adhikari passed the order after sub-inspector Sajedul Islam, also the investigating officer of the case, sought a 7-day remand for him.

Mamunul was produced before the court amid tight security around the court premise.

He was arrested from Jamia Rahmania Arabia Madrasah on Sunday afternoon by a joint team of Tejgaon Division police and DMP's Detective Branch.

Mamunul, who has been in the limelight due to some recent controversies, was held with a woman he claims to be his second wife from a resort in Sonargaon on April 3.

Later, Hefazat leaders claimed that Mamunul went to the resort with his “second wife” where locals confined and harassed him before calling in the police.
