A court here on Tuesday summoned beleaguered ATN Bangla chairman Mahfuzur Rahman to appear before it on September 28 after a defamation case filed against him for making “derogatory remarks” about Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

President of Youth and Sports Affairs of the district unit of Awami League Sultanul Azam Khan filed the defamation case with the court of Senior Judicial Magistrate Court-2.
