A Netrokona court today (September 27) sent BNP Rajshahi district unit convener Abu Sayeed Chand to jail after rejecting his bail petition in four cases on charges of issuing a ‘death threat’ to prime minister Sheikh Hasina at a public rally.
He was produced in the Netrokona Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate 11:00am on Wednesday.
Judge Kamal Hossain denied Abu Sayeed Chand bail and ordered to send him to jail.
Earlier on 19 May, Abu Sayeed Chand reportedly made the threat at a rally organised by the BNP Rajshahi district and city units to demonstrate against harassment and arrests of the opposition activists in various fictitious cases and government corruption.
Later, several cases were filed against Abu Sayeed Chand under the Anti-Terrorism Act for his alleged death threat to Sheikh Hasina.
