Dhaka: A court here on Thursday rejected a petition to show Bangladesh Jatri Kalyan Samity Secretary General Mozammel Haque Chowdhury arrested in a case filed with Kafrul Police Station under the Explosive Substances Act.

Metropolitan Magistrate Md Mazharul Haque passed the order after hearing of the petition.

Mozammel’s lawyer Barrister Jotirmoy Barua said Mozammel Haque is expected to be released from the jail today as the court turned down the petition of police.

The court on Tuesday granted Mozammel bail in a case filed on extortion charge but he was not released from the jail as the investigation officer of the case filed the petition to the court to show him arrested in another case.

Earlier on September 6, police arrested Mozammel from his Sanarpar house in Narayanganj in the extortion case filed with Mirpur Model Police Station.

Later in the day, a court placed him on a one-day remand after he was produced before it seeking a seven-day remand.
