Actress Pori Moni was taken to Kashimpur jail following denial of her bail plea by a Dhaka court on Friday.
“She has been placed in the women section of the jail with other accused,” Abdul Jalil, jail superintendent (acting) of Kashimpur Central Women's Jail told UNB.
Hundreds of curious people started flocking to the main gate of Kashimpur Jail in the afternoon to steal a glance of the actress.
Their presence got so overwhelming that additional police were deployed in the area to keep the situation under control.
A prison van carrying the talk of the town entered the jail premise at around 6:55 pm, reported our correspondent.
Many were disappointed for not being able to see the actress despite waiting for hours.
