Cops won’t seek fresh remand for Hasnat now: DMP

Police will not seek remand for Hasnat Karim, a former teacher of a private university who has been shown arrested in Gulshan attack case, for the time being.

After his two-term remand of 16 days, Hasnat will be produced before a Dhaka court this afternoon, Masudur Rahman, deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, told reporters  at his office today.  

“The information we got from Hasnat during his remand is being scrutinised,” the DC said.

If needed, the law enforcers will seek his remand in the future, Rahman added.

Hasnat, who was detained over the Gulshan café attack, was shown arrested on August 13, in a case relating to the terror incident.

He is the first arrestee in the case.

Also on August 13, Hasnat and another detainee, Tahmid Hasib Khan, were taken on remand as police claimed to have gleaned vital information from the duo during the first-term remand.
