Sangram editor placed on 3-day remand

A Dhaka court has placed Bangla Daily Sangram Editor, Abul Asad, on a three-day remand under police custody.

Metropolitan Magistrate Biman Chandra Mandal passed the order after police produced the editor before the court on Saturday afternoon.

Abul Asad was shown arrested in a case filed under the Digital Security Act. Later, he was taken to court. Ward 36 Muktijoddha commander Afzal Hossain case filed against Abul Asad. 

Earlier on Friday evening, leaders of Muktijuddho Mancha vandalized the office of Jamaat-e-Islami mouthpiece ‘Daily Sangram’ which described executed war criminal Abdul Quader Molla as a ‘martyr’.

Molla, infamously known as 'the butcher of Mirpur', was hanged on Dec 12, 2013, after conviction by the International Crimes Tribunal.

Leaders and activists of the Mancha, led by its President Aminul Islam Bulbul and Secretary Al Mamun, gathered in front of the office around 5 pm and attacked it about an hour later.

They vandalized several televisions, computers, and furniture.

Police later came to the spot and took the Sangram editor to Hatirjheel Police Station.
