A few hours after her arrest, the Gazipur court sent actress Mahiya Mahi to jail in a case filed today under the Digital Security Act.
Gazipur Metropolitan Magistrate Md Iqbal Hussain passed the order after she was produced before the court with a seven-day remand prayer in the case, GMP Commissioner Molla Nazrul Islam said.
At a press conference, the GMP commissioner said, “A petition was filed before the court, seeking a seven-day remand for Mahi. The court did not grant the remand prayer and ordered to send Mahi to jail.”
Around 11:45 am, Gazipur Metropolitan Police (GMP) arrested Mahi from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport when she returned to Dhaka from Saudi Arabia in the morning, reports our local correspondent quoting the GMP commissioner.
She went to perform Umrah in Saudi Arabia with her husband, the commissioner, adding that her husband Rakib Sarkar did not return to Bangladesh with her. Source: The Daily Star
