Five-day remand sought for daily Sangram editor

Police sought a five-day remand for the editor of Bangla Daily Sangram Abul Asad in a case filed under the Digital Security Act on Saturday.

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.
