A Dhaka court on Thursday sent 22 private university students to jail in two cases filed over attacking on police during demonstrations demanding road safety.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sattyabrata Shikder denied the appeal from the defence lawyers seeking bail and sent the students to jail instead.
The students are Rislatul Ferdous, Redwan Ahmmed, Rashedul Islam, ‘Bayezid’, Mushfiqur Rahman, Iftekhar Ahmed, Reza Rifat Akhlaq, AHM Khalid Reza, Tariqul Islam, Noor Mohammad, Simanta Sarker, Iktider Hossain, Jahidul Haque, ‘Hasan’, Saber Ahmed, Mehedi Hasan, Shihab Shahriar, Shakhawat Hossain Nijhum and Aminul Ehsan.
Fourteen of them were arrested in a case started at Badda Police Station and eight others in Vatara Police Station. They are students of East West University, North South University and BRAC University.
A Dhaka court on August 7 placed the 22 students on two-day remand in the two cases.
Earlier, on Tuesday, the court granted two-day remand in the two cases over alleged attacks on police and vandalism during protests for safe roads.
