Hefazat leader Mamunul Haque has been sent to jail after being remanded for 18 days in six separate cases including sabotage and rape. 

Confirming the matter, Narayanganj Court Police Inspector Asaduzzaman said he was sent to Narayanganj District Jail on Saturday morning. 

He added that Mamunul Haque was last remanded for three days in a case filed by the PBI last Wednesday. Of the six cases filed against the Hefazat leader - three were filed by the district police, two by the CID and one by the PBI.  

On May 12, the court granted a total of 15-day remand – three-day remand to each case – in five more cases filed with Siddhirganj and Sonargaon police stations on charges of sabotage and rape.

Earlier on April 30, Jannat Ara Jharna, his “second wife”, filed a case against Mamunul Haque, joint secretary general of the recently dissolved committee of Hefazat-e-Islam and general secretary of Dhaka metropolis, alleging seduction, cheating and torture.

Mamunul Haque’s resort incident at Sonargaon in Narayanganj came to light after the reckless violence in Dhaka, Brahmanbaria and Hathazari in the name of the anti-Modi movement.

After that, the law-enforcement forces started arresting the central leaders of Hefazat one by one on the charge of violence. Following this, the police arrested Mamunul Haque from Jamia Rahmania Arabia Madrasa in Mohammadpur on April 18.
