The court has granted a six-day remand to Helena Jahangir in the case of the Digital Security and Narcotics Act lodged with Gulshan Police Station.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Nevana Khair Jessie’s court granted her remand on Tuesday.
This information has been obtained from the sources of the general registration branch of the concerned court.
On the day, accused Helena Jahangir was produced in court after a three-day remand in the case of the Digital Security Act with Gulshan Police Station. Later, another 10 days remand was appealed in this case.
Earlier on Sunday, investigating officer in the narcotics case Sheikh Shahanur Rahman appealed for a five-day remand. After the hearing, the court granted a total of six days remand – three days each in two separate cases.
It is to be mentioned that RAB arrested Helena Jahangir on July 28 after a four-hour raid at her Gulshan resident in the capital. Foreign liquor, illegal walkie-talkie sets, casino equipment and deerskins were recovered from her home. After her arrest, she was taken to the RAB headquarters for questioning.
RAB handed over Helena Jahangir to the Gulshan police station on July 30. At that time, RAB-1’s CPC Md. Mojibur Rahman lodged a case against her with Gulshan police under the Digital Security Act.
Accused Helena Jahangir was then produced before the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court. Sheikh Shahanur Rahman, the investigating officer of the case, then appealed for a five-day remand for a proper investigation into the case. The court later granted her a three-day.
According to the Digital Security Act case, the accused Helena Jahangir is using the digital platform on the online virtual world to tarnish the law and order situation in the country by discrediting and disseminating false information including insulting the image of important personalities of the country. The matter was brought to the notice of the higher authorities. An investigation into the allegations began.
