A Dhaka court on Tuesday placed model Morium Akter Mou on two-day fresh remand in a case filed with Mohammadpur police station in the capital under the Narcotics Control Act.

Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Sufiyan Md Noman passed the order after Criminal Investigation Department (CID) produced her before the court seeking five-day fresh remand in the case.

However, defence counsels opposed the remand petitions and sought bail for the accused, but their appeals were rejected by the court after hearing.

Earlier, Mou was placed on a total of seven days remand in two phases in the drug case.

On August 1, the Detective Branch of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) arrested Mou from the capital’s Mohammadpur area on charges of blackmailing people with objectionable photos.

Later, the narcotics case was filed against Mou over drugs and liquor allegedly recovered from her residence.
