Rejecting the bail petition of actress Quazi Nawshaba Ahmed, a Dhaka court on Monday ordered the concerned authorities to admit her to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) for treatment, reports UNB.
Additional chief metropolitan magistrate Asaduzzaman Nur passed the order after Nawshaba’s lawyer Shamol Kanti Dhar filed the petition seeking bail for the actress upon completion of her six-day remand in two phases in a case filed under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act.
Earlier, Nawshaba was taken to DMCH as she fell sick at Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court in the afternoon.
Alimuzzaman, deputy commissioner under the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said Nawshaba was produced before a Dhaka CMM court on Monday as her two days’ fresh remand expired on Sunday.
“When she was produced before the court, she fell sick. Later, she was taken to the DMCH for treatment,” said Alimuzzaman.
DMCH officials said the DB police brought Nawshaba to the hospital around 3:45pm and took back after treatment at the medicine department of the hospital at 4:40pm.
Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Amirul Haider Chowdhury on Friday put actress Nawshaba on a two-day fresh remand in the case when Mohammad Rafiqul Islam, a CTTC unit inspector and the investigation officer of the case, produced Nawshaba before his court on expiry of her four-day remand and sought a 10-day fresh remand.
Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained the actress from Uttara area in the capital on 4 August over spreading rumours on Facebook over the attack on protesting students.
In a Facebook live, Nawshaba claimed that the attackers killed two students and gouged out the eyes of another at Jhigatola intersection.
In her post, she also requested people to get united, take to the streets to ‘protect’ the students as they were attacked by Bangladesh Chhatra League activists.
