A Dhaka court on Monday accepted the charges against film actress Pori Moni and two others in a case filed under the Narcotics Control Act.

The others are Ashraful Islam Dipu and Kabir Hossain.

Judge Mohammad Nazrul Islam of the Special Judge Court-10 of Dhaka framed the charge on Wednesday.

All three, now on bail, claimed themselves innocent and demanded justice.

On November 15 last year, Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Emrul Kayesh took the charges into cognisance and fixed December 14 for hearing on charge framing.

CID inspector and also the investigating officer in the case Kazi Mostafa Kamal submitted the chargesheet to Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's Court.

Pori Moni was arrested on August 4, following a raid by Rab on her Banani residence.

A case was filed against her under the Narcotics Control Act the following day.

On August 22, she was sent to jail after inspector Kazi produced her in a court on the completion of a day's police remand, her third.

On August 31, a Dhaka court granted bail to Pori Moni in the drugs case until submission of the chargesheet. She walked out of jail the following day.
