DHAKA:  A Dhaka Metropolitan court sent so-called Jubo League leader Golam Kibria Shamim alias GK Shamim to jail after completing 19 days of remand in two cases filed under anti-money laundering and arms acts.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sadbir Yasir Ahsan Chowdhury passed the order on Sunday (October 13) as investigation officer (IO) and CID senior assistant superintendent of police Abu Sayeed produced Shamim before the court and pleaded to keep him behind bars until the end of probe in the case.

However, lawyers pleaded for his bail.

GK Shamim was produced before the court on Sunday after 5 days of remand in the money laundering case.

Earlier on October 2, a Dhaka court placed Shamim on a total of nine-day remand in the two cases.

RAB detained GK Shamim on September 20.
