A Dhaka court on Tuesday granted four days remand for Banani hotel rape prime accused Safat Ahmed’s driver Billal and three days remand for Safat’s bodyguard Rahmat Ali in connection with the case filed over the rape.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Lashkar Sohel Rana granted police to take bodyguard Rahman for four days and driver Billal three days in remand for interrogation in custody.
Investigation Officer of the case Israt Jahan Amy, inspector of victim support centre, sought the duo in 10-days of remand for quizzing over the rape incident.
Billal and Rahmat’s lawyer submitted that the two were mere staff of the prime accused and they were no way involved with the rape.
Billal and Rahmat were arrested on Monday night.
Of the five accused, four people — Ahmed Shafat, son of the owner of Apan Jewellers, Safat’s friend Sadman Sakif, driver Billal and bodyguard Rahmat— have been arrested. The other accused Nayem Ashraf is still on the run.
