Court denies bail to 22 arrested students

A Dhaka court yesterday denied bail to 22 private university students at the end of their two-day remand in connection with a case filed over vandalism and attacks on the police. Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Satyabrata Shikder denied the bail appeal by defence lawyers  and sent the students to jail instead.

On Tuesday, the court had granted the two-day remand of each of these students of East West University, North South University, South East University and BRAC University.

Badda police arrested 14 and Bhatara police arrested eight of these students.

In the court area, the parents of the students were waiting eagerly to meet them. They broke down in tears when bail was denied to the students.

Badda police told the court that 14 of the students had been intensely interrogated. They gave their names and addresses during questioning. They also gave vital information pertaining to the case. The police are trying to arrest the absconding students.

Bhatara Police said that eight of the students had admitted to attacking police.

However, the lawyer appointed by some students claimed that they were not involved in any attack or any kind of vandalism on that day. Rather, they attended their classes. Some of the students were arrested while they were returning home after classes.

Some of the students told the court that their exams would be held next week, So, if denied bail, they would not be able appear for it.

One of the students was seriously injured at the time of detention and the court ordered his treatment as per the jail code. Earlier, on Tuesday, the lawyers of the students claimed that the police tortured them in police custody.

The police, however, claimed  the students had attacked them on Monday with sticks, bricks, and obstructed traffic movement. While the law enforcers tried to stop them, the students indulged in vandalism and tried to set fire to the Badda police station.

The law enforers also claimed that the students attacked police with iron rods, iron pipes and bricks in Apollo Hospital and North South University area of Bashundhara residential area.

They further claimed that the absconding students were active members of militant groups. So, it was necessary to further interrogate the arrested students.

Those arrested by Badda police are Risalatul Ferdous, Redawn Ahmed, Rashedul Islam, Bayezid, Musfiqur Rahman, Iftekhar Ahmed, Reza Rifat, Khalid Reza, Tarikul Islam, Nur Mohammad, Shimanto Sarker, Iktadeer Hossain, Jahidul Haque and Hasan.

On the other hand, students arrested by Bhatara police are Azizul Karim, Masad Mortruza Bin Asad, Foyez Ahmed Adnan, Saber Ahmed, Mehedi Hasan, Shihab Shahariar, Shakhawat Hossain and Aminul Ehasan.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, law enforcers arrested Yousuf Chowdhury, 40, the CEO of Zoom Bangla, an online news portal, for allegedly trying to foment trouble by publishing fake news and spreading rumours on social media regarding the student protest.

Two students from Dhaka and Bogra—Daiyan Alam, 22, and Md Arifur Rahman Zahid, 22—were arrested for the same reason.
