Mainul lands in jail again
A Dhaka court has sent Barrister Mainul Hosein to jail, turning down his bail appeal in a case over his remarks on defaming journalist Masuda Bhatti, reports bdnews24.com.
Metropolitan Magistrate Tofazzal Hossain passed the order on Tuesday, rejecting the bail appeal from the former caretaker government adviser.
Meanwhile, at least three more cases were filed against Mainul in Chattogram, Mymensingh and Cox's Bazar yesterday, raising the number of cases to nine, including the one filed by Masuda with a Dhaka court on Sunday.
Arrest warrants were issued for him in Chattogram and Cox's Bazar.
In another development, two ministers in separate programmes said Mainul was arrested for his alleged involvement in a crime, not for his political affiliation.
During the bail hearing, Mainul's lawyer Khandaker Mahbub Hossain argued that the case filed with a Rangpur court was not “maintainable” as its complainant Mili Maya Begum was not an aggrieved person and Masuda already filed a case in this regard with a Dhaka court.
