A Dhaka Court on Friday sent Shah Newaz Shahanshah, suspended mayor of Jamalpur’s Dewanganj municipality, to jail in a case filed for slapping a government official on Victory Day.

Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jasim passed the order after Police Inspector Mujahidul Islam of Uttara East Police Station produced him before the court seeking order to send him in jail.

Defence lawyer submitted a petition seeking bail for the accused but the court rejected the plea after hearing. 

Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Shah Newaz Shahanshah from a hotel in the capital’s Uttara area along with heroin, Phensedyl and Yaba tablets on Thursday.
