A Dhaka court on Thursday placed actress Pori Moni on a one-day fresh police remand in connection with a case filed under the Narcotics Control Act.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Md Atikul Islam passed the order, rejecting the actor's bail plea after Criminal Investigation Department (CID) inspector Kazi Golam Mostafa produced her in the court this morning.
Earlier on Tuesday, inspector Kazi, also the investigating officer in the case, sought Pori Moni's remand for five days for the third phase of investigation in the case.
On the other hand, Pori Moni’s counsel Majibur Rahman filed a petition seeking bail for his client in the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Rezaul Karim Chowdhury on Monday.
On Friday, a Dhaka court sent actress Pori Moni and her associate Ashraful Islam Dipu to jail, turning down their bail pleas. A Dhaka court on August 10 placed actress Pori Moni on a two-day fresh remand in the case.
Pori Moni, whose allegation of rape attempt on her by businessman Nasir U Mahmood and others prompted firestorm in social media barely two months back, was detained from her home on August 4.
A case was filed against the actress under the Narcotics Control Act the following day.
On August 5, a Dhaka Court placed her on a four-day remand in the case.
The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has been tasked with investigating the charges brought against her. The department took over the case from the Detective Branch (DB).
Pori Moni and her associate Nazrul Islam Raj were ringleaders of an organised gang, said Commander Khandaker Al Moin, director of legal and media wing of RAB, in a media briefing on August 6.
