Sangram editor placed on 3-day remand

Abul Asad, editor of the Jamaat-e-Islami mouthpiece ‘Daily Sangram’, has been placed on three-day remand in a case lodged under the Digital Security Act.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrare Mainul Islam on Saturday passed the order after police produced Abul Asad before the court seeking five-day remand against him. 

The case was lodged with Hatirjheel Police Station by ward 36 Muktijoddha commander Afzal Hossain on Friday night.

He was shown arrested in the case on Saturday, said DMP's Tejgaon division deputy police commissioner Biplob Bijoy Talukder. 

Earlier on Friday evening, leaders and activists of Muktijuddho Mancha vandalized the office of Daily Sangram at city's Mogbazar and locked it over a new published on the newspaper describing executed war criminal Abdul Quader Molla as a ‘martyr’. 

Later, Hatirjheel police went to the spot and took editor Abul Asad under custody.
