Suspended BCL leader placed on fresh remand

DHAKA,  A Dhaka court today placed former vice president of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) Tariqul Islam Mumin on a two-day fresh remand in a case lodged over forgery of Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) document.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Nivana Khayer Jessy passed the order as investigation officer (IO) and Tejgaon Police Station inspector (acting) Shamim Ur Rashid pleaded to place the accused on a five-day fresh remand.

Earlier on May 8, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Moinul Islam placed Mumin, two other accused in the case, Farhad and Nazim Uddin on a four-day remand. Farhad and Nazim already gave confessional statements.

The other prime accused PMO staff Fatema has also given confessional statement on May 10. She has confessed to bring out a confidential file from PMO and hand that over to Farhad, an associate of Mumin, who had changed the prime minister’s decision through forgery.

Mohammad Rafiqul Alam, director-7 of PMO, on May 5 filed the case with Tejgaon Police Station. Mumin was arrested on May 6 from Bhola.

Tariqul Islam Mumin was later suspended permanently from Bangladesh Chhatra League.
