Quota reform leader Faruk denied bail

WT24 Desk

A Dhaka court on Sunday rejected the bail petition of quota reform leader Faruk Hassan in two cases filed over attacks on police and vandalising the residence of Dhaka University vice-chancellor, reports UNB.

Metropolitan magistrate Sadbir Yeasir Ahsan Chowdhury sent Faruk, a joint convener of Bangladesh General Students’ Rights Protection Council, and two others — Jashim Uddin Akash and Moshiur Rahman – to jail when police produced him before his court on completion of two-day remand in each case.

On 14 July, Detective Branch of police inspector Bahauddin Faruqi, also the investigation officer of the cases, took Faruk on a two-day remand in each case.

Earlier on 10 April, four cases were filed with Shahbagh police station over violence unleashed during demonstrations on 8 April demanding reform of the existing quota system in public service.
