A Dhaka Court on Wednesday placed Monir Khan alias Dorji Monir, president of so-called Bangladesh Jananetri Sheikh Hasina Parishad, on a four-day remand in a case filed with Kamrangirchar Police Station in the capital.

Metropolitan Magistrate Diman Chandra Mandol passed the order after police inspector Mohammad Saiful Islam, also the investigating officer of the case, produced him before the court seeking on a ten-day remand.

Opposing the remand petition, defence submitted a bail petition for Dorji Monir but the court rejected the plea after hearing.

Earlier on Sunday night, police arrested Dorji Monir from the capital over various allegations including extortion and forgery.

One Ismail Hossain filed a case on Monday against Dorji Monir with Kamrangirchar Police Station on charges of extortion and forgery.

There is allegation that Monir formed the so called organisation titled “Bangladesh Jananetri Sheikh Hasina Parishad” by defaming Awami League.

Apart from this, there are also allegations against him for manipulating Photoshop and posting altered pictures of himself with important people of the government including the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Facebook.

Monir has allegedly become the owner of vast wealth through land brokerage and lobbying.
