Journalist Kajol denied bail petition
A virtual court in Dhaka has denied a bail petition of photojournalist Shafiqul Islam Kajol in a case filed against him with Kamrangirchar Police Station under the Digital Security Act.
Metropolitan Magistrate Baki Billah of Virtual Court-6 passed the order on Wednesday.
The court General Registrar Sub Inspector Shawkot Ali confirmed the matter to Jago News on Thursday.
On March 11, Sumaiya Chowdhury Banna, member of Bangladesh Jubo Mahila League’s Central Committee, filed the case against Kajol under the DSA.
On June 23, Kajol was shown arrested in a case filed against him with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station. The case was filed by ruling party lawmaker from Magura-1 Saifuzzaman Shikhor.
On June 28, Kajol was placed on a two-day remand in another case filed on March 10 with Hazaribagh Police Station.
Fifty-three days into his disappearance, Kajol was found by Border Guard Bangladesh in Benapole on May 3.
He was then arrested on charges of trespassing, but was granted bail by a Jashore court.
However, that same evening he was shown held under section 54 of the Code of Criminal Procedure after police informed the court that three more cases against Kajol were now pending with different police stations in the capital.
The court then sent him to Jashore Jail.
