Film actress Eka denied bail, sent to jail

A court in Dhaka on Sunday sent film actress Eka to jail in two separate cases filed for allegedly torturing domestic help, and possessing drugs.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jashim gave the order rejecting a six-day remand - three days each case - plea filed by the police, and a bail prayer by the actress.

Earlier on Saturday evening, police arrested Eka from her Hatirjheel house in the capital on the charge of torturing house help.

The law enforcers said they also recovered five pieces of Yaba pills, around 50 grams of hemp, and a half bottle of liquor from her possession.

Out of the two cases, the victim lodged one on the charge of torturing her, and police filed another for allegedly possessing drugs. Both lawsuits were registered with Hatirjheel Police Station.

It was learned that actress Eka hit her domestic help with brick after she had demanded her two-month wage arrears., leaving her injured. 

Later, the victim took treatment at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).

Hatirjheel Police Station officer in-charge Abdur Rashid said they found injury marks on the hand, leg, and head of the victim.
