Former president of Jubo League Dhaka South Ismail Hossain Samarat and his close aide Enamul Haque Arman have been taken to the custody of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB-1).
They were taken to RAB custody on Thursday after shifting the responsibility of the investigation of the case from the detective police to the RAB.Earlier on October 15, Samrat has been put on 10-day remand in two cases filed under the arms act and narcotics control act while Arman was placed on five-day remand in the case filed under narcotics control acts.
Investigation officer of the cases produced Samrat and Arman before the court with remand petition.
Earlier on October 9, the same court fixed Tuesday (Oct 15) for remand hearing as Samrat could not be produced before the court on that day due to his illness.
Samrat was admitted to National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases on Tuesday (Oct 10) as he fell ill and later on Saturday he was taken to central jail after recovery.
