A Dhaka court recorded the confessional statement of ‘spiritual’ leader Ali Hasan Osama in a case filed on charges of planning to attack Jatiya Sangsad on May 5.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Debbrata Biswas recorded the statement of Osama on Saturday after Kazi Mizanur Rahman, inspector of the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit of DMP, produced him before the court with a plea to record his statement.

After recording the statement under section 164 of the CrPC, the magistrate sent Osama to Dhaka Central Jail in Keraniganj.  The court also sent banned Ansar al Islam operative Al-Amin to jail after IO Mizanur Rahman produced him before the court on completion of his remand in the same case.
