Nizami Remanded for Faruk Murder
Tuesday, 13 July 2010

The Ramna police on Monday remanded Jamaat-e-Islami chief Matiur Rahman Nizami in custody for four days in a murder case.

Cab driver Mohammed Faruk Hossain, who sustained injuries on June 26 in an arson allegedly by pro-hartal people just before the June 27 countrywide shutdown, later died.

Nizami was taken to court on Monday noon after nine consecutive days of remand in three cases with the Paltan police. He was, however, put in the court custody.

The Faruk murder investigation officer earlier petitioned the court for question him on a four-day remand granted earlier in the case.

Magistrate Mohammad Ali Hussain of Dhaka's Additional Chief Magistrates' Court-3, granted the remand plea, rejecting the defence lawyers' appeal for sending him to jail.

The defence argued that Nizami is exhausted and depressed and also seriously ill. He needs treatment before he could be remanded again, it observed.

The magistrate asked the investigation officer to arrange for his treatment.

Jamaat-e-Islami secretary general Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mojaheed and central executive member Delwar Hossain Sayedee had been taken into remand on Saturday in the same case.

The Jamaat trio had been arrested on June 29 for violating a court order in a case related to hurting religious sentiments.

The following day, two separate Dhaka courts ordered the police for remanding the trio for 16 days in five cases
