Xulhaz, Tanoy murder suspect put on 5-day fresh remand

A Dhaka court on Thursday placed Shariful Islam alias Sihab, arrested in connection with the killing of USAID staff Xulhaz Mannan and his friend Mahub Tanoy, on a five-day fresh remand.

 

Dhaka Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Md Alamgir Kabir Raja passed the order when DB inspector Bahauddin Faruki produced Sihab before the court seeking a 10-day remand for him after expiry of his 3-day remand, UNB reports.

 

Earlier, on May 15, a special team of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of DMP arrested Shariful, a suspected member of Ansarullah Bangla Team, for his alleged involvement in the double murder.

 

Xulhaz Mannan, editor of LGBT magazine Roopbaan, and his friend Mahbub Tanoy, an activist of theatre group Loknatya Dal, were hacked to death by some unidentified miscreants at an apartment in the capital’s Kalabagan area on April 25.
