A Brahmanbaria court placed a local Awami League leader on a two-day remand in a case filed in connection with the synchronised attack on Hindu community people in Nasirnagar upazila of the district.
The court order came a day after detectives arrested Suruj Ali, who was recently suspended from the president post of Chapartola Union Awami League. He was an alleged key instigator of the attack that took place on October 30.
The district’s Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Md Shafiqul Islam passed the order when police produced Suruj Ali before the court with a seven-day remand prayer.
At least eight cases were filed in connection with the attack incident. Police detained 107 people so far over the attack.
