Prothom Alo journo Shams sent back to Dhaka Jail 

Prothom Alo journalist Shamsuzzaman Shams was sent back to Dhaka Central Jail in Keraniganj from Kashimpur Central Jail-1 in Gazipur on Saturday (April 1) morning.

He was sent to the Dhaka Central Jail around 10:15am in a prison van, said Shahjahan Ahmed, senior jail super of Kashimpur Central Jail-1.

Earlier on Friday, the journalist was shifted to Kashimpur Jail with several other accused.

"He has been kept at Kashimpur Jail at night. Later, he was again sent back to the Dhaka Jail this morning as per top officials' directives," Shahjahan Ahmed added.

Earlier on March 30, Shams was produced before a Dhaka court that sent him to jail in the DSA case filed with Ramna Police Station.

Police arrested Shams from Savar on the outskirts of the capital early on March 29 following a news report published in the daily that allegedly tarnished the image of the government.
