A Dhaka court on Thursday placed Bangladesh Jatri Kalyan Samiti secretary general Mojammel Huq on a one-day remand in an extortion case filed with Mirpur police.
Metropolitan magistrate Majharul Huq passed the order after Mirpur police sub-inspector Bazlar Rahman placed Mojammel before the court and sought seven-day remand.
Mojammel was arrested by the Mirpur police at about 3:00am in a case of extortion lodged with the police station earlier, said the police station's sub-inspector Aklima Begum.
The sub-inspector, however, declined to say the name of the complainant and the details of the extortion charge.
