DNCC ward councillor Rajib remanded


A Dhaka court has placed Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) ward councillor Tarequzzaman Rajib on a 14-day remand in two separate cases.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Yeasmin Ara on Sunday night passed the remand order after police produced him before the court seeking 20-day remand --10-day for the case filed under Firearms Act while another 10-day for the case under Narcotics Control Act.

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Saturday night arrested Rajib, a councillor of ward-33 under DNCC, from the capital on charges of his involvement in extortion and land grabbing.

Rajib is also a joint general secretary of Jubo League’s Dhaka north unit.
